A new family of Laniatores (Arachnida:Opiliones) from the Afrotropics
Evidence from recent molecular phylogenetic studies that corroborate the independence of Pyramidopidae, fam.
Resource Utilization and Environmental and Spatio-Temporal Overlap of a Hilltopping Lycaenid Butterfly Community in the Colombian Andes
The results pointed out that community's assemblage could be mainly shaped in two ways, the first is that species with determined habitat requirements fit into unoccupied niche spaces and the second is by niche segregation in the vertical space distribution variable.
A new Hygromiinae of the NW-Iberian Peninsula Cryptosaccus asturiensis n. gen., n. sp. (Pulmonata: Helicoidea: Hygromiidae)
Three new Assamiidae (Arachnida: Opiliones) from Cameroon, with a redescription of Chilon robustus and comments on related species
The revision of syntypes of several related species allowed us to revalidate Chilon undulatus Sorensen, 1896 and to postulate that Rhabdopygus maculatus Roewer, 1935 does not belong to R HabdopyGus.
DELIMITATION OF BIOGEOGRAPHICAL AREAS IN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA ON THE BASIS OF HELICOIDEA SPECIES (PULMONATA: STYLOMMATOPHORA)
A sectorization of the Iberian Peninsula has been obtained on the basis of Helicoidea species distributions. The distributions were analysed by multivariate methods with several qualitative indices,…

Faunal structure, species relationships and distribution patterns of Pronophilina butterflies, a Neotropical montane section of the Satyrinae (Nymphalidae), of 5 isolated north Andean massifs…
A new iridescent “elfin” butterfly species of Podanotum (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae: Eumaeini) from the Colombian Andes
A new butterfly species, Podanotum pulsar Prieto & Rodriguez n. sp. is described from the high Andes of Colombia. Wepresent a brief discussion on its systematic placement and on adult ecology. Adult…
Genital morphology of Caracollina lenticula (Michaud, 1831), with a new proposal of classification of helicodontoid genera (Pulmonata: Hygromioidea)
Observations show that the mucous gland is attached to the «appendix» and that the so called «app appendix» is an organ where secretion elaborated by the mucus gland is accumulated, thus corresponding to the accessory sac in the sense of Nordsieck (1987).
Flourishing in subterranean ecosystems: Euro-Mediterranean Plusiocampinae and tachycampoids (Diplura, Campodeidae)
The present monograph provides a taxonomic revision of the subfamily Plusiocampinae and the genera belonging to the tachycampoid lineage from Europe and the Mediterranean region together with data on the habitats and distributions of 87 species, 10 subspecies and 11 affinis forms.
Defining the Species Micromonospora saelicesensis and Micromonospora noduli Under the Framework of Genomics
Overall results provided a working framework for defining Micromonospora species at the genomic and phenotypic level and supported the current classification of M. saelicesensis and M. noduli as separate species.
