Nucleotide Composition of CO1 Sequences in Chelicerata (Arthropoda): Detecting New Mitogenomic Rearrangements
The results indicate that these two orders are more liable to fix mutations of all types, including base substitutions, indels, and genomic rearrangements. Expand
A new and endangered species of the pseudoscorpion genus Lagynochthonius from a cave in Vietnam, with notes on chelal morphology and the composition of the Tyrannochthoniini (Arachnida, Chelonethi,
The so-called ‘sensorium’ near the tip of the fixed chelal finger of Lagynochthonius species is shown to be a modified tooth that has migrated dorsally from the dental margin. Expand
Redescription of the bee-associate Ellingsenius fulleri (Hewitt and Godfrey) (Arachnida, Chelonethi, Cheliferidae) with new records from Africa, Europe and the Middle East
Ellingsenius fulleri (Hewitt and Godfrey), a bee-associated pseudoscorpion, is redescribed. New records are given for Mozambique, Oman, Iran, Cyprus and Spain. Ellingsenius somalicus Beier, fromExpand
Reinterpretation of Dracochela deprehendor (Arachnida: Pseudoscorpiones) as a stem-group pseudoscorpion
The middle Devonian pseudoscorpion Dracochela deprehendor Schawaller, Shear and Bonamo is redescribed from the type material and an additional palpal fragment, and it is concluded that the panctenal state (all lamellae attached to finger) is plesiomorphic relative to the hemictenal world, which has evolved independently in Heterosphyronida and Neobisioidea.

Studies on the Tenerffiidae (Acari : Anystoidea). II. A review of the genus Austroteneriffia
The genus Austroteneriffia Womersley, the type species, is redescribed and a second South Australian species, A. leei, sp. Expand
Studies on the morphology and Ssystematics of the Teneriffiidae (Acari, Prostigmata). 1. A new species of Neoteneriffiola from Namibia
The homologies and notations of the podocephalic and intracapitular glands of Prostigmata are discussed and a gland duct homologous with gl.c III of Caeculidae and the Lassenia-organ of certain Parasitengona, is demonstrated in Teneriffiidae. Expand

The first extant representatives of the pseudoscorpion family Feaellidae from Southeast Asia are described and the new morphological term atrial plate is proposed for a sclerotized plate of the male genitalia, extending between the lateral rods and the lateral apodemes. Expand
Cheliferoid pseudoscorpions (Arachnida, Chelonethi) from the Lower Cretaceous of France
A new genus is described from the Lower Cretaceous amber of Archingeay (Charente-Maritime, France), characterized by having gaping chelal fingers, elongate tarsal setae on leg I and the basal position of the tactile seta on the tarsus of legs III and IV. Expand
First fossil record of the pseudoscorpion family Pseudochiridiidae (Arachnida, Chelonethi, Cheiridioidea) from Dominican amber
Pseudochiridium lindae n. sp. is described from Dominican amber (Miocene), representing the first fossil record of the family Pseudochiridiidae. The extant species Pseudochiridium insulae Hoff, 1964Expand
