The activity rhythms, feeding behavior, and reaction to light of two epigean (surface inhabitant) species of harvestmen (Iporangaia pustulosa and Iguapeia melanocephala) and of one cav- ernicolous species (Pachylospeleus strinatii) have been recorded. Both the epigean and the cavernicolous species showed a highly pronounced circadian rhythmicity. The cave species showed a bimodal pattern. Whereas the epigean species carried food away to feed, the cave species fed where they found the food. The… Expand
