A new species of opilioacarid mite, Opilioacarus thaleri n. sp., is described from mid-level elevation close to the seashore in Crete (Greece). It was found on moister sites, under stones or inside stone accumulations in phrygana vegetation. The peak of activity was found to be in early May. The diagnostic morphological characters include 7–8 eugenital setae (female), 5/7 setae on each sclerite at pregenital and genital areas, 11 setae on genital area (male), anterior dorsal shield with two…

A new species of Opilioacarus With, 1902 (Acari: Opilioacaridae) from Italy, and a new diagnosis of the genus.
TLDR
Using material deposited in Museo Civico di Storia Naturale of Verona, Italy, it was possible to identify and describe a new Opilioacarus species and review the genus diagnosis, using the shape of setae d and setation of the preanal segment.

TLDR
The distribution pattern of lyrifissures and setae on the hysterosoma of opilioacarid larvae appears to be the most complete pattern of these structures in the order Parasitiformes, and strongly suggests an ancestral segmental arrangement of the cuticular sensillae and glands.

Karyotypes of central European spiders of the genera Arctosa, Tricca, and Xerolycosa (Araneae: Lycosidae)
TLDR
Differences in karyotypes among Arctosa species indicate that the evolution of the karyotype in this genus involved auto- some translocations and size changes in the sex chromosomes.
