Sexual dimorphism in the Arachnid orders

An overview of the research to date on the trends and potential evolutionary drivers for SD and sexual size dimorphism (SSD) in individual arachnid orders, and across Arachnids as a whole is provided.

In vicariance biogeography, widespread or sympatric taxa can be dealt with under assumptions 0, 1, and 2. Data from cladogenetic relationships among taxa of a monophyletic group and their

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.

The expression of limb gap genes in the mite Archegozetes longisetosus reveals differential patterning mechanisms in chelicerates

It is shown that in contrast to many arthropod species, A. longisetosus expresses homothorax and extradenticle exclusively in the proximal portion of the appendages, which refutes the hypothesis of a sister‐group relationship between chelicerates and myriapods and adds support to the hypothesis that a cheliceral dachshund domain is ancestral to arachnids.

Phylogeography in sexual and parthenogenetic European oribatida

Post- and pre-glacial colonization of Europe by sexual and parthenogenetic oribatid mite species showed a different colonization pattern of Europe and provided hints on mechanisms responsible for the maintenance of sexual reproduction.

Gross morphology, histology, and ultrastructure of the alimentary system of Ricinulei (Arachnida) with emphasis on functional and phylogenetic implications

Ricinuleid functional mouthparts are the cucullus, the chelicerae, the pedipalps, and the labrum. These structures are movably jointed to the rest of the prosoma, most likely protruded upon

On Corniculi, Rutella and Pseudorutella — Some Ultrastructural Details of Key-Characters in Acari (Arachnida)

A first comparative ultrastructural study on these elements is presented taking representatives of all main groups of Acari in consideration and it was shown that the structures under concern are quite different even in closely related taxa.

The affinities of mites and ticks : a review

Previous hypotheses of mite affinities are reviewed to highlight important character sets which should be included in subsequent phylogenetic analyses, as well as useful areas for future investigations: particularly tagmosis and the nature of the gnathosoma.
