54 genera

The Dendryphantina are a subtribe of jumping spiders that occur mainly in the New World.[1] The subtribe was first defined by Anton Menge in 1879 as Dendryphantidae. Females of the subtribe generally show paired spots on the abdomen, and the males often have enlarged chelicerae.[2] Females in this subtribe typically have S-shaped epigynal openings.[2]


The inclusion of genera follows Joel Hallan's Biology Catalog, with the exception of Agassa, which is now grouped with Sassacus, and Xuriella, discovered in 2000.
