ABSTRACT. This paper provides preliminary reference diagnostic drawings for selected Oriental genera and species, to complement the existing scanty literature. The following new taxa are described: new genus — Katya gen.n., new species: Burmattus pachytibialis sp.n., Carrhotus sundaicus sp.n., Chrysilla deelemani sp.n., Cosmophasis valerieae sp.n., Cytaea whytei sp.n., Euryattus [?] junxiae sp.n., Katya florescens sp.n., Katya ijensis sp.n., Katya inornata sp.n., Ligurra moniensis sp.n., Meata zabkai sp.n., Myrmarachne balinese sp.n., Myrmarachne glavisi sp.n., Myrmarachne jacksoni sp.n., Phaeacius azarkinae sp.n., Siler lewaense sp.n., Stergusa incerta sp.n., Thyene gangoides sp.n. and Thyene benjamini sp.n.

The following new combinations and synonyms are established: Artabrus jolensis Simon, 1902 = Telamonia jolensis (Simon, 1902) comb.n., Euophrys chiariatapuensis Tikader, 1977 = Thiania bhamoensis Thorell, 1887 syn.n., Evarcha kochi Simon, 1902 (reinstated as separate species), Gangus concinnus (Keyserling, 1881) = Thyene concinna (Keyserling, 1881) comb.n., Gangus decorus Simon, 1902 = Thyene decora (Simon, 1902) comb.n., Gangus longulus Simon, 1902a = Thyene longula (Simon, 1902) comb.n., Gangus manipissus Barrion et Litsinger, 1995 = Thyene manipisa (Barrion et Litsinger, 1995). Original combination Emertonius exasperans Peckham et Peckham, 1892 is reinstated. The subdivision of the genus Myrmarachne MacLeay, 1839 is discussed. Complementary diagnostic drawings are added for the following species: Artabrus erythrocephalus (C.L. Koch, 1846), Harmochirus brachiatus (Thorell, 1877), Hasarius adansoni (Audouin, 1826), Myrmarachne hirsutipalpi [?] Edmunds et Prószyński, 2003, Spartaeus spinimanus (Thorell, 1878), Thiania bhamoensis Thorell, 1887. Several unidentified species are also mentioned, whenever they contribute to our knowledge of the geographical distribution of their respective genera.
