Estimating biomass of Neotropical spiders and other arachnids (Araneae, Opiliones, Pseudoscorpiones, Ricinulei) by mass-length regressions
TLDR
Equations from mass-length regressions from the literature, resulting from spider samples in temperate regions, should not be used to estimate biomass of samples from neotropical spider assemblages, especially when absolute biomass is of interest and when precision is required. Expand
Patterns in the composition of ground-dwelling spider communities in the Pilbara bioregion, Western Australia
Ground-dwelling spiders were sampled at 304 quadrats in 24 survey areas chosen to represent the geographical extent and diversity of terrestrial environments in the Pilbara region of WesternExpand
The Goblin Spider Genus Pelicinus (Araneae, Oonopidae), Part 1
TLDR
It is hypothesized that Pelicinus is primarily an Old World genus, occurring natively in both southern Asia and Australasia, and only those members of the genus that occur outside that continent are treated, resulting in 16 new species being described. Expand
On Nesticus from Meridional South America (Araneae, Nesticidae)
Five new species of Nesticus Thorell, 1869 are described: N. potreiro, N. taim from southern Brazil; N. brignolii from southern Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay; N. calilegua from southern Brazil andExpand
Seven new species of Latonigena (Araneae, Gnaphosidae) from South America
TLDR
Seven new species of Latonigena Simon, 1893 are described, including the first descriptions of males of this genus, which is described from Bolivia and Brazil. Expand
Litter dwelling mygalomorph spiders (Araneae: Microstigmatidae, Nemesiidae) from Araucaria forests in southern Brazil, with the description of five new species
TLDR
Phenological data were obtained through the abundance in each trapping period; results suggest an overwintering reproductive pattern for S. arnolisei sp. Expand
The Brazilian Goblin Spiders of the New Genus Predatoroonops (Araneae: Oonopidae)
TLDR
The new endemic goblin spider genus Predatoroonops is erected for 17 new soft-bodied oonopid species from Brazil, and the type species, P. schwarzeneggeri, sp. Expand
Simlops, a New Genus of Goblin Spiders (Araneae: Oonopidae) from Northern South America
TLDR
A new genus of goblin spiders, Simlops, is proposed for 15 species found in Brazilian and Colombian Amazonia and southern Caribbean (Venezuela and Guyana), hypothesized to be a monophyletic group united by a unique conformation of the male endites. Expand
THREE NEW SPECIES OF THE HAPLOGYNE SPIDER GENUS COXAPOPHA PLATNICK FROM THE AMAZON REGION (ARANEAE, OONOPIDAE)
Three new species of Coxapopha Platnick (Araneae, Oonopidae) from the Amazon Region are described: C. bare, known from male and female and C. carinata, known only from the male, both from the stateExpand
