Napoca is a genus of jumping spiders that was first described by Eugène Louis Simon in 1901.[2] As of July 2019 it contains only two species, found only in Israel and Spain: N. constanzeae and N. insignis.[1] It is one of seven genera comprising the Harmochireae clade within the Dendryphantinae subfamily.[3]

It can be distinguished from similar genera such as Bianor and Sibianor by its sclerotized, bean-shaped abdomen, which overhangs the carapace. In addition, the posterior median eyes are much closer to the anterior lateral eyes than they are in related genera.[3]
