The cyphophthalmid family Pettalidae in South Africa is revised and seven new species are described from museummaterial collected between 1939 and 1985. Two of these are placed in the genusPurcellia andfive inParapurcellia, bringing the total number of described South African cyphophthalmids to 15. In addition, Purcellia peregrinator is transferred to the genus Parapurcellia. Phylogenetic analyses of discrete morphological and continuous morphometric characters, both separately and in… CONTINUE READING
