NEW SPIDERS (ARANEAE: MESOTHELAE), FROM THE CARBONIFEROUS OF NEW MEXICO AND ENGLAND, AND A REVIEW OF PALEOZOIC ARANEAE
The fossil record of Paleozoic spiders is sparse. Fifty-two specimens have, at one time or another, been attributed to Araneae, but, herein, the number actually belonging to that arachnid order isExpand
The oldest haplogyne spider (Araneae: Plectreuridae), from the Middle Jurassic of China
TLDR
New fossil spiders from Middle Jurassic strata of Daohugou, Inner Mongolia, China are described as Eoplectreurys gertschi gen. et sp. Expand
RESISTANCE OF SPIDERS TO CRETACEOUS‐TERTIARY EXTINCTION EVENTS
TLDR
It is provided the first evidence that spiders suffered no decline at the family level during these mass extinction events, and it is shown that they increased in relative numbers through the Cretaceous and beyond the CRETaceous—Tertiary extinction event. Expand
Phylogenomic Analysis of Ultraconserved Elements Resolves the Evolutionary and Biogeographic History of Segmented Trapdoor Spiders.
TLDR
The important role of major tectonic events in shaping the evolutionary history, present-day diversity, and geographical distribution of mesothele and liphistiid spiders is highlighted. Expand
The Fossil Arachnida
Concerning the fossil orders, Dunlop (1996a, b) presents a revised concept of the formerly accepted (Weygoldt and Paulus 1979; Shultz 1990) five fossil orders of Arachnida. The subclasses ofExpand

Cretaceous arachnid Chimerarachne yingi gen. et sp. nov. illuminates spider origins
TLDR
A new Cretaceous arachnid fossil encased in Burmese amber sheds light on the evolution of spiders, as it preserves both primitive and derived features, suggestive of a basal Araneae position. Expand
Imaging techniques in the study of fossil spiders
TLDR
Thanks to the excellent preservation of some fossil spiders, and modern techniques available to provide exquisite images of fine morphological details, fossil spiders can now be considered taxonomically (sub)equal to modern forms. Expand
Pre‐Pleistocene geological events shaping diversification and distribution of primitively segmented spiders on East Asian margins
TLDR
Historic biogeographical reconstructions strongly suggest predominant vicariant origins of EAM island liphistiids, and population genetic and demographic results suggest interrupted gene flow within and among islands, with most species exhibiting stable past populations. Expand
A genus-level taxonomic review of primitively segmented spiders (Mesothelae, Liphistiidae)
TLDR
This work revises liphistiid genus level taxonomy based on original sampling throughout their Asian range, and on the evidence from a novel molecular phylogeny, and provides strong support for the monophyly of Liphistiidae, and the two subfamiliesliphistiinae and Heptathelinae. Expand
