ABSTRACT: We examined a set of salticids from southern Mexico, all of them subsequently assigned to Synemosyna maddisoni Cutler, 1985, which has not been illustrated since the original description. Therefore, we have provided detailed micrographs of the copulatory organs of both sexes and remarks on the male palpus, which has a simple embolus with pars pendula and an apical sclerite. Moreover, we have emended the diagnosis taking in account the resemblance with S. ubicki Cutler, 1988 which was described after the original description of S. maddisoni.

KEY WORDS: Aranei, Mexico, diagnosis, pars pendula, redescription.
