Vernacular names
English: Chorizopes

Chorizopes is a genus of orb-weaver spiders first described by O. Pickard-Cambridge in 1871.[1] Though it belongs to the orb weaver family, these spiders move through leaf litter preying on other spiders rather than spinning webs.[2] The original name was "Chorizoopes", but the emendation Chorizopes by Tamerlan Thorell is now protected by usage.[3]

As of April 2019 it contains twenty-six species, most from India and China, with several others found in locations ranging from Madagascar to Japan:[3]
