The type specimens of 15 nominal salticid species from Venezuela described by Lodovico di Caporiacco were examined. In this paper we present brief redescriptions when deemed necessary as well as three new synonymies: Aculeobreda Caporiacco, 1955 = Pachomius Peckham & Peckham, 1896; Sidusa variegata Caporiacco, 1955 = Simonurius quadratarius (Simon, 1901); Sitticus cabellensis Prószynski, 1971 = Pseudattulus incertus Caporiacco, 1955; and five new transferences: Aculeobreda hadzji Caporiacco, 1955 = Pachomius hadzji (Caporiacco, 1955) comb. nov.; Dendryphantes franganilloi Caporiacco, 1955 = Metacyrba franganilloi (Caporiacco, 1955) comb. nov.; Evarcha venezuelica Caporiacco, 1955 = Asaracus venezuelicus (Caporiacco, 1955) comb. nov.; Pseudamphidraus femellus Caporiacco, 1955 = Marma femella (Caporiacco, 1955) comb. nov.; Scopocira sexspinosa Caporiacco, 1955 = Sassacus sexspinosus (Caporiacco, 1955) comb. nov. Phintodes craneae Caporiacco, 1955, described based on a juvenile, must be treated as species inquirenda. (AU)
