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.
