The genua Roquettea Mello-Leitão, hitherto monotypic and known from Brazilian state of Pará, is rediagnosed, the type species, Roquettea singularis is redescribed, including a report on two male morphs, being the second record of male polymorphism in Cosmetidae, the first in South America. Three new species are described from northern Brazil — Roquettea taurine n. sp. (which possesses a unique horned ocularium) and Roquettea jalapensis n. sp. (without notable scutal structures), both from the… Expand
Relationships and cladistic analysis of Roquettea with description of two new species and notes about evolution of stylus in Cosmetidae (Opiliones, Grassatores)
TLDR
The phylogeny of the genus Roquettea Mello-Leitão, 1931 and its position in Discosomaticinae are investigated and the monophyly of an expanded Roquettes is for the first time tested and corroborated by means of a morphological maximum parsimony cladistic analysis. Expand

TLDR
A maximum parsimony phylogenetic analysis of morphological characters was performed to test the hypothesis that several species of alleged Pachylinae, mostly Discocyrtus, from southern Brazil were suspected of belonging in Roeweriinae. Expand
Revalidation of the Brazilian genus Discocyrtanus, with description of two new species (Opiliones: Gonyleptidae: Pachylinae).
The genus Discocyrtanus Roewer, 1929, is herein revalidated from the synonymy of Discocyrtus Holmberg, 1878, to include besides the type species Discocyrtanus goyazius Roewer, 1929, four otherExpand
Intraspecific spination pattern in Discocyrtus prospicuus (Holmberg, 1876) (Opiliones: Gonyleptidae) reviewed: revalidation of the harvestman genus Opisthoplatus, with two new synonymies and biogeographical notes on their morphs
A study of several Argentinean/southern Brazilian nominal species currently included in the genus Discocyrtus Holmberg, 1878 was conducted. We restore Opisthoplatus Holmberg, 1878 from synonymy ofExpand
Two new species of Roquettea Mello-Leitão, 1931 from northern Brazil (Opiliones: Laniatores: Cosmetidae)
TLDR
Two new species of the genus Roquettea Mello-Leitao, 1931 (Opiliones: Cosmetidae) are described from Para State, northern Brazil, suggesting a high degree of undersampling of those rare cosmetids. Expand
On the identity of Flirtea (Arachnida, Opiliones, Cosmetidae).
TLDR
Genital morphology of Flirtea picta is described for the first time and a particular pattern of a white mask blot on the dorsal scutum be called "scaramuccia", and variation in this pattern is described. Expand
Four new species of Cosmetus from Panama, with comments on the systematics of the genus (Opiliones: Cosmetidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that the spine of area III, sexually dimorphic chelicerae and posterior legs, and pigmentation of dorsal scutum are good diagnosti c features at species level. Expand
Unveiling the diversity of Phalangodus Gervais, 1842 (Opiliones: Cranaidae): descriptions of four new species from Colombia
TLDR
SEM images of the penis of Phalangodus, including the type species of the genus, P. anacosmetus Gervais, 1842, are provided for the first time and sexual dimorphism and the morphology of stylar caps and ovipositor in Cranaidae are discussed. Expand
Characterization of Platymessa with redescription of the type species and a new generic synonymy (Arachnida, Opiliones, Cosmetidae).
TLDR
Genital morphology of Platymessa h-inscriptum is described and some characters are discussed regarding their importance in cosmetid taxonomy and novel forms of sexual dimorphism are described in coxa IV. Expand
Revision of the genus Ferkeria Roewer, 1947, with the description of a new species (Opiliones: Laniatores: Cosmetidae).
TLDR
A new diagnosis for the cosmetid genus Ferkeria Roewer, 1947 is proposed and a new species, Ferkaria flavicoxae sp. Expand
