Synagelides Strand in Boesenberg, Strand, 1906

Diagnoses of genera of South East Asia: Synagelides (3-4; 3). This a genus which in our opinion is not particularly ant-like, although sometimes referred to as such. The carapace is longer than wide, parallel sided and round at the rear. It is fawn to orange coloured with the eye surrounds black. Abdomens vary in shape from a broad to a slender oval. For our Vietnamese species the front of the abdomen is greyish with two white spots, followed by a broad, light coloured, transverse band medially and then a brown area near the spinnerets. The legs are long and thin with the front legs similar to those of Agorius, especially the curved metatarsi with the ventral cluster of spines in the apical half. The trochanters and femora of leg I are dark orange, and all the other segments of all legs, including the coxae, are greyish yellow.
Distribution: The main centre for Synagelides is just to the north of our area. The region extends from the Himalayas through to Korea and Japan with single species occurring in Myanmar and Vietnam. Murphy & Murphy 2000: 310. By courtesy of the Authors' and the Malaysian Nature Society.
