Zora spinimana has three pairs of ventral spines on metatarsus i and II, whereas Z. silvestrisonly has two pairs. Size: Female 5-6.5 mm; male 4.5-5 mm.

Genus: Zora C. L. Koch, 1847. Characters of genus: The spiders of this genus have a narrowed carapace at the front and a characteristic dark compact eye group with both eye rows strongly recurved. Paired ventral spines are present on legs I and II, just like in the Liocranidae. All species are similar in general appearance, the general colour is yellow with a wide brown band extending back from each posterior lateral eye. The abdomen has a thin Y-shaped brown marking flanked by spots and irregular lines, overall the markings being very distinctive for the genus.
