Abstract Neocarus proteus sp. n., is described from caves and the surrounding epigean environment of ferruginous outcrops (Cangas) in Minas Gerais, Brazil. In addition, some notes about development in this species are presented. Neocarus proteus is the only species in the genus that has smooth or barbed genital setae and that carries coronidia on the basitarsi, tibiae and genua of legs II–III. Females carry additional setae with rounded tips on the subcapitulum, and are, on average, larger than…

A new opilioacarid species (Parasitiformes: Opilioacarida) from Crete (Greece) with notes on its karyotype
Comparison with data of the ixodids and mesostigmatids indicates that a low number of chromosomes and predomination of acrocentric chromosomes could be plesiomorphies of the parasitiform mites.
A new species of Masteria (Araneae: Dipluridae: Masteriinae) from southeastern Brazil
The new species is the only known Masteria with only two eyes, and the male of M. emboaba sp.
An opilioacarid mite in Cretaceous Burmese amber
The presence of Opilioacarida—potentially Opiloacarus—in the Cretaceous of SE Asia suggests that some modern genus groups were formerly more widely distributed across the northern hemisphere, raising questions about previously suggested Gondwanan origins for these mites.
Neocarus caipora, a new mite species (Parasitiformes: Opilioacarida: Opilioacaridae) from brazilian Amazon caves
A new species of the genus Neocarus (Parasitiformes: Opilioacarida: Opileacaridae) is described and illustrated from brazilian Amazon caves.
Phylogeny, evolution and systematic revision of the mite harvestman family Neogoveidae (Opiliones Cyphophthalmi)
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the family Neogoveidae including representatives of all genera but the monotypic Tucanogovea Karaman, 2013, and new information on the type species described by Jochen Martens in 1969 are provided, supported by Phylogenetic analyses based on maximum likelihood, parsimony and Bayesian inference.
Post-embryonic development in the mite suborder Opilioacarida, with notes on segmental homology in Parasitiformes (Arachnida)
Development of an updated model for body segmentation and sensillar distribution patterns in Opilioacarida is documented, leading to the hypothesis that all taxa in that (super)order Parasitiformes may have the same segmental ground plan.


A new species of Neocarus Chamberlin & Mulaik, 1942 (Acari: Opilioacarida) from Brazilian caves and karst areas
A new species of the genus Neocarus is described from caves and the epigeal environment of the Apodi Carbonatic Group, northeast Brazil, distinguished by the presence of smooth setae on thebasal portion of the evaginated ovipositor.
New species of New World Opilioacaridae (Acari: Parasitiformes) with the description of a new genus from the Caribbean region.
Four new species and one new subspecies of Opilioacaridae are described from Mexico, Cuba, and Panama as well as a new genus, Caribeacarus, with three species from the greater Antilles and Panama.
The genus Salfacarus (Acari: Opilioacarida) in Madagascar
The opilioacarid genus Salfacarus in Madagascar is revised, with description of four new species and a new delimitation for the type species, S. legendrei.
Studies on Opilioacarida (Arachnida) I. Description of Opilioacarus texanus (Chamberlin & Mulaik) and revised classification of the genera
The first part of the study on Opilioacarid morphology is connected with my very interesting travel to the United States of America in 1963, and consists of species that belong to two genera, the extent of the series is provisionally estimated at two papers.
Phylogenetic and biogeographic analysis of the genus Caribeacarus (Acari : Opilioacarida), with description of a new South American species
A new species of Caribeacarus is described from the state of Pará, in the eastern part of the Brazilian Amazon, and a phylogenetic analysis of the species in this genus is presented, and its historical biogeography in Central and South America is interpreted.
Studies on Opilioacarida (Arachnidea) : IV. The genera Panchaetes Naudo and Salfacarus gen. nov.
The present paper is the first in which part of the new material is described; it contains redescriptions of species of the genus Panchaetes Naudo, and descriptions of new species ofthe genus Salfacarus gen. nov.
Prelarva and larva of Opilioacarus (Neocarus) texanus (Chamberlin and Mulaik) (Acari: Opilioacarida) with notes on the patterns of setae and lyrifissures
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.
Studies on Opilioacarida (Arachnida) III. Opilioacarus platensis Silvestri, and Adenacarus arabicus (With)

Feeding behaviour and phylogeny: observations on early derivative Acari
It is determined that Australian Allothyridae are scavengers that ingest fluids only, consistent with the hypothesis that the earliest mites were scavengers and opportunistic predators that ingested solid foods and that fluid feeding is a derived condition linking the three orders of Parasitiformes.
Plant communities on ironstone outcrops: a diverse and endangered Brazilian ecosystem
Mountain areas are recognized centres of endemism and diversity on account of their isolation and altitudinal diversity. In tropical regions, mountain tops usually stand as islands of xeric
