Abstract:  A single specimen of a new species of oribatid mite belonging to the genus Jureremus Krivolutsky, in Krivolutsky and Krassilov 1977 , previously described from the Upper Jurassic of the Russian Far East, is described as J. phippsi sp. nov. The mite is preserved by iron pyrite replacement, and was recovered by sieving from the Oxford Clay Formation (Jurassic: Upper Callovian) of South Cave, Yorkshire. It is the first record of a pre‐Pleistocene mite, and the second species record of… 

Harvestmen (Arachnida: Opiliones) from the Middle Jurassic of China

TLDR
Jurassic arachnids from Middle Jurassic strata of Daohugou, Inner Mongolia, China, are described as Mesobunus martensi gen. et sp.

Description of Neoliodes dominicus n. sp. (Acari, Oribatida) from Dominican Amber, Aided by Synchrotron X-ray Microtomography

TLDR
The objective is to describe and name the first oribatid mite species described from Dominican amber based on two adult specimens, incorporating images from synchrotron X-ray microtomography.

A new genus of oribatid mite, Spineremaeus gen. nov. and three new species of Scapheremaeus (Acari: Oribatida: Cymbaeremaeidae) from Norfolk Island,South-west Pacific, and their biogeographical affinities

TLDR
All four cymbaeremaeid species from Norfolk Island show strongest biogeographical affinities with the oribatid fauna of New Zealand rather than Australia, as well as three new species belonging to the genus Scapheremaeus.

First fossil Mecysmaucheniidae (Arachnida, Chelicerata, Araneae), from Lower Cretaceous (Uppermost Albian) amber of Charente-Maritime, France

ABSTRACT The first known fossil mecysmaucheniid spider, Archaemecys arcantiensis n. gen., n. sp., is described, from Lower Cretaceous (Upper Albian) amber of Charente-Maritime, France. This is the

A new species of fossil oribatid mite (Acariformes, Oribatida, Trhypochthoniidae) from the Lower Cretaceous amber of San Just (Teruel Province, Spain)

Abstract A new fossil species, Trhypochthonius lopezvallei sp. nov. (Trhypochthoniidae), is described based on one specimen preserved in amber from the San Just outcrop (Teruel Province, Spain)

On the placement of the Cretaceous orthopteran Brauckmannia groeningae from Brazil, with notes on the relationships of Schizodactylidae (Orthoptera, Ensifera)

TLDR
This species represents the first fossil occurrence of Schizodactylidae and the only New World record of this ancient lineage and a sister-group relationship with Grylloidea is advocated based on a reappraisal of morphological and molecular evidence.

How many species of fossil arachnids are there

TLDR
Spiders appear to dominate the fossil arachnid species assemblage, making up a greater proportion of paleodiversity than their Recent diversity would predict and groups like mites, harvestmen, pseudoscorpions and solifuges are noticeably under-represented as fossils when compared to modern patterns of diversity.

A Review of the Fossil Record of Spiders (Araneae) with Special Reference to Africa, and Description of a New Specimen from the Triassic Molteno Formation of South Africa

TLDR
The fossil record of spiders as currently known is briefly reviewed, with special reference to Africa, and a new species of Triassaraneus andersonorum Selden is described from a different locality in the Molteno Formation of South Africa.

Fossiliferous Cretaceous Amber from Myanmar (Burma): Its Rediscovery, Biotic Diversity, and Paleontological Significance

TLDR
The stratigraphic distribution of exclusively Mesozoic arthropods in Burmese amber is reviewed, which indicates a probable Turonian-Cenomanian age of this material.

A terrestrial alicorhagiid mite (Acari: Acariformes) from the Devonian of New York

TLDR
This family record is consistent with the presence of related extant mite families in the Devonian-age Rhynie Chert of Scotland, and lends support to the validity of the latter material.

Subfossil Oribatid Mites in the Holocene Deposits of the Arkhangel'sk Oblast

TLDR
A question is raised as to the timing and ways of development of the Holocene northern European oribatid fauna.

First Mesozoic Record of a Parasitiform Mite: a Larval Argasid Tick in Cretaceous Amber (Acari: Ixodida: Argasidae)

TLDR
Earlier hypotheses that Carios arose after the isolation of South America are challenged but not rejected by the discovery of this fossil, and Salvaging these hypotheses seems most compatible with dispersal on birds, an idea consistent with the presence of a small feather in the same outcrop in which the tick fossil was found.

An Early Jurassic oribatid mite from southern Sweden

TLDR
The find of an acarid belonging to the still-living genus Hydrozetes Berlese, 1902 was found in the Lower Sinemurian (Jurassic) in a core drilling from south of Hoganas, Skane, indicating a marine environment.

A large parasitengonid mite (Acari, Erythraeoidea) from the Early Cretaceous Crato Formation of Brazil

The true identity of the supposed giant fossil spider Megarachne

TLDR
Giant mygalomorph Megarachne servinei is shown to be a bizarre eurypterid (‘sea-scorpion’), similar to rare forms known from Carboniferous rocks of Scotland and South Africa, and is the most complete euryopterid so far recorded from carboniferous strata of South America.
