Distinguishing the Jumping Spiders Eris Militaris and Eris Flava in North America (Araneae: Salticidae)
By Wayne Maddison
Psyche Volume 93, Issue 1-2, Pages 141-149 doi:10.1155/1986/27959, 1986
FIRST PARAGRAPH (no abstract defined): The jumping spiders now identified as Eris marginata are among the most frequently encountered in North America, for they are common on trees, shrubs and herbs throughout much of the continent. However, two species have been confused under this name. One is an abundant transamerican species whose proper name is Eris militaris; the other is Eris flava, widely distributed in eastern North America though common only in the southeast. In this paper I describe how they may be distinguished. The abbreviation MCZ refers to the Museum of Comparative Zoology; ZMB to the Zoologisches Museum, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin.

Title was cut off, here is the complete one: "The jumping spider genus Thiodina Simon, 1900 reinterpreted, and revalidation of Colonus F.O.P-Cambridge, 1901 and Nilakantha Peckham & Peckham, 1901 (Araneae: Salticidae: Amycoida)"

This transfers all North America Thiodina into the genus Colonus. Wayne Maddison let me know that two papers are coming out which will properly show the relationships and subfamilies of Salticidae, so unless someone doesn't see this and tries to change Thiodina to Colonus in BugGuide, I've decided to wait until those papers are published in order to rearrange the way Salticidae is currently set up here.
