This paper describes a new genus of Nesticidae based on morphology of the genital characters and supported by molecular data. The new genus, Domitius n. gen., includes a group of seven cave-dweller species spread along western European peninsulas (Iberian and Italian). Molecular phylogenetic analysis shows that these species constitute an independent and highly supported evolutionary lineage being the sister group to Kryptonesticus Pavlek Ribera, 2017, Nesticus Thorell, 1869 and… Expand
Domitius Culsu sp. nov. (Araneae, Nestici-dae), a new troglobiont spider from Italy with notes on Italian nesticids of the genus Domitius Ribera, 2018
Seven species from the spider family Nesticidae are currently known for the Italian fauna. Three Italian nesticids belong to the newly-established genus Domitius Ribera, 2018. All these species showExpand
Lampenflora and the entrance biofilm in two show caves: comparison of microbial community, environmental, and biofilm parameters
Phototrophic microorganisms from two caves in Serbia (Podpeć and Stopić) were examined. Samples were taken from the entrances where natural light was present, as well as from the inside caves nearExpand


Kryptonesticus deelemanae gen. et sp. nov. (Araneae, Nesticidae), with notes on the Mediterranean cave species
A new genus and a new species belonging to the family Nesticidae are described based on morphology and supported by molecular data and are clear candidates for protection: they have highly restricted ranges and some of them show a high degree of adaptation to the subterranean environment. Expand

Winter is coming: Miocene and Quaternary climatic shifts shaped the diversification of Western‐Mediterranean Harpactocrates (Araneae, Dysderidae) spiders
Past climatic shifts have played a major role in generating and shaping biodiversity. Quaternary glacial cycles are the better known examples of dramatic climatic changes endured by ecosystems inExpand
Gone with the plate: the opening of the Western Mediterranean basin drove the diversification of ground-dweller spiders
This study provides the first unequivocal evidence of terrestrial endemic fauna of the major western Mediterranean islands, whose origin can be traced back to the Oligocene separation of these islands from the continent. Expand
