Family: Salticidae
Subfamily: Agoriinae
Tribe: Agoriini

Genus: Agorius

Undescribed species have been found in Malaysia and Sabah. No new species were described for about one hundred years, with two new species found in the early 2000s.

The genera Agorius and Synagelides (and perhaps Pseudosynagelides) are sometimes separated as a genus group, called subfamily Agoriinae Simon, 1901. Several more species have been found but not yet described

Both sexes are about six to eight mm long. Agorius is similar to Myrmarachne another good ant mimic, but can be distinguished from it by having no large, forward-pointing chelicerae, and is not found on vegetation above the ground, but only in rain forest leaf litter.
