Stygophrynus sunda, new species, is described from Ujung Kulon National Park, Banten and adjacent island in the Sunda Strait based on male and female specimens. The only previously known species from the Sunda region, Stygophrynus dammermani Roewer, 1928, is reviewed and discussed with the new illustrations and diagnostic characters. The distribution of S. dammermani is found across western Java up to central part of Java and the Krakatau Islands. The distribution of S. sunda is recently only… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Stygophrynus orientalis sp. nov. (Amblypygi: Charontidae) from Indonesia with the description of a remarkable spermatophore.

A new charontid whip spider from Banggai Island, Indonesia is described, representing the most eastern record of the genus exceeding the formerly postulated restriction of its distribution western of the Wallace Line.

Whip spiders of the genus Sarax in the Papuan region, with description of two new species (Amblypygi: Charinidae)

Sarax monodenticulatus is distinguished from the other two Papuan species by possessing a single denticle on the pedipalpal tarsus, and the taxonomic status and the natural history of the species are discussed.

eygoldtia , a new genus of Charinidae Quintero , 1986 ( Arachnida , mblypygi ) with a reappraisal of the genera in the family ustavo

A new genus is described and illustrated to accommodate the species Sarax davidovi Fage, 1946 based on unique characters and is supported by two synapomorphies: the presence of a straight crest anterior to the lateral eyes and the longitudinal orientation of the rod sensilla on tarsus of leg I.

Arachnozoogeographical analysis of the boundary between Eastern Palearctic and Indomalayan Region

This study aims to test how the distribution of various orders of Arachnida follows the classical subdivision of Asia and where the transitional zone between the Eastern Palearctic (Holarctic

The fossil record of whip spiders: the past of Amblypygi

Whip spiders (Amblypygi), as their name suggests, resemble spiders (Araneae) in some aspects, but differ from them by their heart-shaped (prosomal) dorsal shield, their prominent grasping pedipalps,

The status of the whip spider subgenus Neocharon (Amblypygi: Charontidae) and the distribution of the genera Charon and Stygophrynus

The Solomon Island endemic species of Charontidae, Stygophrynus (Neocharon) forsteri Dunn 1949, is transferred to the genus Charon, thus forming the new combination Charon forsteru (Dunn 1949), a new combination of Charon and Neocharon.

The phylogeny of fossil whip spiders

The data suggest that Graeophonus is a crown group amblypygid, and falls within a monophyletic Paleoamblypgi clade, but outside the family Paracharontidae (= Paracharonopsis + Paracharon).

The general character of “The Fauna of British India” is so well known, and has been so frequently commented on, that it is only necessary to say that the present half-volume is similar to those which have preceded it, and that the high character of the series is fully maintained.

PRIOR to 1883 there existed in the Sunda Straits between Sumatra and Java three small islands, the largest of which, Krakatau, was composed of three active volcanoes, Perboewatan, Danan and Rakata.

A cladogram and phylogenetic system is presented that allows a discussion of the phylogeny and biogeography of whip spiders and points to unresolved taxa and thus indicates the questions future research should address.

Sperm Transfer and Spermatophore Morphology of the Whip Spiders Sarax buxtoni, S. brachydactylus (Charinidae), Charon cf. grayi, and Stygophrynus brevispina nov. spec. (Charontidae) (Chelicerata, Amblypygi)

Their behaviour and spermatophores supports the placement of the genera Stygophrynus and Charon in the taxon Charontidae and the presence of lateral horns on the sperMatophore head of Charon raises the question of whether these structures are synapomorphic for the Neoamblypygi or even Euambly pygi.
