Charippus is a spider genus of the Salticidae family (jumping spiders). Its only described species, C. errans, is endemic to Burma.

The species was described from a single male in 1895. Thorell put it close to Euophrys. A redescription of this male, together with drawings of pedipalp, chelicerae and habitus, was provided by Fred Wanless in 1988.
