Rhondes is a spider genus of the Salticidae family (jumping spiders). It is represented by a single species, Rhondes neocaledonicus.

It was synonymized with the genus Hasarius until R. neocaledonicus was removed from the synonymy in 2008, based on molecular studies. It is now grouped with several other Australasian genera in the unranked clade Astioida.[1]
