The paper below showed that "Cyrtarachne keralensis" is a synonym of Anepsion maritatum:

Malamel, J.J., Sankaran, P.M., Joseph, M.M. & Sebastian, P.A. 2015. Cyrtarachne keralensis Jose, 2011 is a junior synonym of Anepsion maritatum (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1877) (Araneae, Araneidae). Zootaxa 4039(3): 478-482.

This is definitely Anepsion maritatum (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1877). See Tanikawa & Yamasaki (2019) & these iNaturalist observations:

Tanikawa, A. & Yamasaki, T. 2019. Anepsion japonicum (Bösenberg & Strand 1906) is a junior synonym of A. maritatum (O.Pickard-Cambridge 1877). Acta Arachnologica 68(1): 11-13.
