The type specimens of ten of Nicolet's species of jumping spider from Chile were examined. In this paper we present seven new synonymies and two new combinations for these nominal species as well as a redescription and illustrations where necessary. Attus iricolor Nicolet 1849, Attus scalaris Nicolet 1849, Attus superbus Nicolet 1849 and Attus zonarius Nicolet 1849 are synonymized with Dendryphantes mordax (C.L. Koch 1846); Euophrys quilpuensis Simon 1901, Attus vanus Nicolet 1849 and Attus vestitus Nicolet 1849 are synonymized with Euophrys rusticana (Nicolet 1849) comb. nov.; Attus legibilis Nicolet 1849 is tentatively transfered to Dendryphantes C.L. Koch 1837.
