Genus Stenaelurillus Simon, 1885

Diagnoses of genera of South East Asia: Stenaelurillus (?; 6). An immature male S. setosus (sub Philotherus) from Myanmar was described by Thorell, 1895. The carapace is oblong, slightly narrower in front and slightly curving to a broadly truncated rear. Basically black in colour with a dense black pubescence, the cephalus is rust coloured and there is a whitish, curved, widish stripe on each side. The abdomen has a wide transverse whitish band at the front and a narrower one near the spinnerets. In between, the abdomen is clothed with a black pubescence surrounding two whitish, circular spots and some other white marks. The legs are black except for the tarsi, all of which are yellow save for a darkening near the top. The habitus of S. setosus and the genitalia of other Stenaelurillus species are drawn in Proszynski, 1984.
Distribution: The main centre for Stenaelurillus is Africa. Single species are recorded from Tibet, India, Myanmar and China. Murphy & Murphy 2000: 282-283. By courtesy of the Authors' and the Malaysian Nature Society.
