ABSTRACT. A new species of ant-like jumping spiders (Salticidae) — Belippo eburnensis sp.n. (♂♀) — is diagnosed and described from Ivory Coast. It belongs to a small genus within the very species-rich tribe Myrmarachnini. This species, as well as B. cygniformis Wanless, 1978 and B. ibadan Wanless, 1978, are assigned to the newly proposed cygniformis species group, of which all three congeners occur in West Africa.

KEY WORDS: Afrotropical Region, Aranei, Ivory Coast, Myrmarachnini, taxonomy.
