I am learning Dired in Evil mode.
/ are Evil keys that obviously work in Dired.
Are there others?
Is there a table of Evil keys for Dired?
I am using Emacs 25.2.1 with Evil, Spacemacs, and Ivy.

Here are a few things you can try to see available keys:
? -- actually this is partly wrong because
SPC ? dired
F1 m (
SPC h SPC dired -- this lets you jump to the code for the layer that configures dired,
spacemacs-base, which for key bindings purposes is mostly about keys to run dired rather than once you're using dired
Here are some dired keys I find useful (in fact nearly all are the same as in stock emacs, so you can also just read the info page with
F1 i and much of it will correct key bindings still -- follow menus using
m to go to Emacs -> Dired).
Note that 'marking' files lets you operate on multiple files at once when e.g. copying or moving files.
fOpen file or directory
oOpen file in a separate window
+Create a directory
RRename / move
MChange file/directory mode (unix file/directory permissions)
uUnmark / undelete
x'Expunge' -- i.e. actually delete files/directories marked for deletion
