Two new species of spiders of the genus Selenops Latreille, 1819 (Araneae: Selenopidae) and redescription of Selenops scitus Muma, 1953 from Mexico
Two new species of Selenops Latreille, 1819 from Mexico are described: Selenops aztecus sp. nov. from the state of Veracruz, known only from a single male, and Selenops santibanezi sp. nov. from the
A new species of Loxosceles Heineken & Lowe (Araneae, Sicariidae), with updated distribution records and biogeographical comments for the species from Mexico, including a new record of
Mexico has the greatest diversity of species of Loxosceles worldwide, with 39 (two introduced species) of the 134 described species, and is home to the largest number of new species than any other country.
Microhabitat change drives diversification in pholcid spiders
Diversification analyses strongly suggest that microhabitat is an important factor influencing diversification patterns in pholcid spiders, and provide a framework for any subsequent studies of pholCid spider biology.
Four new species of the genus Pseudocellus (Arachnida: Ricinulei: Ricinoididae) from Mexico
The number of known species in the genus increases to 24, and Mexican species to 14, and an identification key for adult males of the species found in Mexico and southern USA is provided.
Volcanism and palaeoclimate change drive diversification of the world's largest whip spider (Amblypygi)
Barriers and diversification patterns identified in Acanthophrynus are reflected in the phylogeography of codistributed vertebrates and arthropods, emphasizing the profound impact of Trans‐Mexican Volcanic Belt orogeny and glacial/interglacial cycles as drivers of diversification in the Mexican Neotropics.
Two new species of ricinuleids of the genus Pseudocellus (Arachnida: Ricinulei: Ricinoididae) from southern Mexico.
The number of known species of the genus Pseudocellus increases to 25, and Mexican species to 16, indicating that Mexico has the highest diversity of ricinuleids in the world.
A remarkable new species of the magnus species-group of Cryptocellus (Arachnida, Ricinulei) from Ecuador, with observations on the taxonomy of the New World genera.
A new ricinuleid species, Cryptocellus chimaera sp. nov., is described based on a male specimen from Northwest Ecuador (Esmeraldas, Reserva Ecológica Mache-Chindul, Estación Biológica Bilsa). This
On the Mexican ricinuleids: a new species of the genus Pseudocellus (Arachnida: Ricinulei: Ricinoididae) from the cloud forest of Chiapas, Mexico
A new species of epigean ricinuleid of the genus Pseudocellus Platnick, 1980 is described from a cloud forest of the state of Chiapas, Mexico. The species is described based on adult males and
A new epigean species of ricinuleid of the genus Pseudocellus (Arachnida: Ricinulei: Ricinoididae) from a tropical sub-deciduous forest in Oaxaca, Mexico
The total number of described species of Pseudocellus from Mexico increases to 20, having the highest species diversity of known ricinuleids worldwide.
