Convergence, Hemiplasy, and Correlated Evolution Impact Morphological Diversity Related to a Web-Less Lifestyle in the Two-Clawed Spiders

Using traits related to the climbing ability of spiders, it is shown that, when hemiplasy is unlikely, adequate model testing can be used to better understand correlated evolution, and propose hypotheses to be tested using controlled behavioral and mechanical experiments.

Molecular phylogeny of the tropical wandering spiders (Araneae, Ctenidae) and the evolution of eye conformation in the RTA clade.

The ancestral reconstruction of the ocular conformation in the retrolateral tibial apophysis clade suggests that the ophthalmological pattern of Ctenidae has evolved convergently seven times and that it has originated from ocular conformations of two rows of four eyes and the Ocular pattern of lycosids.

Two new dionychan spiders from arid western South Africa (Araneae: Prodidomidae, Trochanteriidae)

Two new species of dionychan spiders were collected in the arid western interior of South Africa and described, and scanning electron micrographs detail some aspects of the fine morphology of this enigmatic genus for the first time.

Trophic specialization of a newly described spider ant symbiont, Myrmecicultor chihuahuensis (Araneae: Myrmecicultoridae)

The CHC profile of M. chihuahuensis did not match the profile of the ants with which it associates, Novomessor albisetosus (Mayr), but ants and spider shared several compounds, potentially involved in species recognition.

A new species of Plator Simon, 1880 from Pakistan, with a supplementary description of P. pandeae Tikader, 1969 (Araneae: Trochanteriidae)

Abstract: Plator soastus sp. nov. of the spider family Trochanteriidae Karsch, 1879 is described and illustrated on the basis of female specimens collected in the Swat Valley, representing the first

Prodidomus rufus Hentz, 1847 (Arachnida: Araneae), Irak'ın Güneyinden Dişinin Yeniden Tanımlanması ve Yeni Erkek Kaydı

The female of the species Prodidomus rufus Hentz 1847 is re-described as the males were first recorded in Al-Gharraf district, north of Thi Qar province- southern Iraq, depending on the copulatory organs (Palp and Epigynum) illustrated in the figures and have a role in distinguishing between species.

The phylogeny of acariform mites: what brought us here and perspectives

Compared to Hexapoda, a clade to which the mite diversity rivals, the amount of acariform molecular data estimated in cells in supermatrix alignments is lagging behind by approximately one decade.
