We propose a new genus of plexippine jumping spiders from the Western Ghats of India based on the new species While it bears a superficial resemblance to in body form and in membrane-bearing embolus, our UCE phylogenomic data-the first to resolve broad relationships within the Plexippina-as well as morphological features justify its status as a new genus. In addition to the molecular data and morphological descriptions, we provide photographs of living specimens of and information on their natural history.
