Sub-family Spartaeinae
subfamily of Salticidae (jumping spiders)

Spartaeinae usually have large posterior median eyes.


The Spartaeinae are a subfamily of the spider family Salticidae (jumping spiders). It was established by Fred R. Wanless in 1984 to include the groups Boetheae, Cocaleae, Lineae, Codeteae and Cyrbeae, which in turn were defined by Eugène Simon.

18 existing and five extinct genera, with 119 existing species, are included as of 2006.
They are palaeotropical, with an exceptional diversity in the Malaysian and Indonesian archipelagos.

They are unusual salticids that are considered basal to the phylogenetic tree of jumping spiders. Like the Lyssomaninae they lack many derived features that the Salticoida possess.[
The two subfamilies are similar, but the Spartaeinae usually have large posterior median eyes. However, these were reduced in the genera Cyrba, Gelotia and Wanlessia.

Genus: Portia
孔蛛屬
 

Portia  jumping spiders feeds on other spiders (araneophagic). They are remarkable for their hunting behavior which suggests they are capable of learning and problem solving, traits normally attributed to much larger animals.

Portia fimbriata are found in the rainforests of Australia, Sri-Lanka, and Malaysia. (Jackson 1992)
