External Morphology of the Male Harvestman Phalangium opilio (Arachnida: Opiliones)
TLDR
Cuticular setae, hairs, and denticles on the segments of legs, pedipalpus, and chelicerae of P. opilio are described and some of these structures will probably prove to be of diagnostic value for P. Opilio.
Sensory biology of Phalangida harvestmen (Arachnida, Opiliones): a review, with new morphological data on 18 species
Willemart, R. H., Farine, J.-P. and Gnaspini, P. 2008. Sensory biology of Phalangida harvestmen (Arachnida, Opiliones): a review, with new morphological data on 18 species. 2014Acta Zoologica
Re-description of Togwoteeus biceps (Arachnida, Opiliones, Sclerosomatidae) with notes on its morphology, karyology and phenology.
TLDR
This study sought to determine if observed morphological variations were linked to the existence of unrecognized new species of harvestman in North America, and documented morphological, chromosomal, and phenologica l information.
Survey of cuticular structures on leg IV of cosmetid harvestmen (Opiliones: Laniatores: Gonyleptoidea)
TLDR
The results indicate that there is considerable interspecific variation in rough pit glands and the tarsal perforated organ among cosmetid and gonyleptoidean harvestmen.
Comparative Study of the Microanatomy of Four Species of Harvestmen (Opiliones, Eupnoi)
TLDR
Using scanning electron microscopy, the morphology of somatic and reproductive structures of Neotropical taxa were compared with that of a temperate sclerosomatid species, Leiobunum formosum, and interspecific variation in the surface texture of the cuticle and the distribution of setae on the body and appendages was observed.
THE FIRST FOSSIL CYPHOPHTHALMID (ARACHNIDA, OPILIONES) FROM BITTERFELD AMBER, GERMANY
TLDR
Two features in this harvestman fossil are consistent with the Recent genera Siro, Paramiopsalis and Tranteeva: smooth tarsi and metatarsi in legs 1 and 2 and the apparent absence of a dorsal crest on the basal article of the chelicera.
Interspecific variation in the microanatomy of cosmetid harvestmen (Arachnida, Opiliones, Laniatores)
TLDR
There are several microanatomical structures associated with the ocularium, dorsal scutum, male chelicera, and pedipalp that could represent informative phylogenetic characters in future taxonomic studies of cosmetid harvestmen.
On the family Fissiphalliidae Martens, 1988, with descriptions of two new Amazonian species (Arachnida: Opiliones: Laniatores)
TLDR
A future phylogenetic analysis should determine if Fissiphalliidae is in fact the sister group of Zalmoxidae, or just a junior synonym, but this character should be tested in a phylogenetic framework.
Forgotten gods: Zalmoxidae of the Philippines and Borneo (Opiliones: Laniatores)
TLDR
Six new species of litter-inhabiting harvestmen in the genus Zalmoxis Sorensen, 1886 are described using light microscopy and SEM, adding to known morphological variation of Z Almoxis, specifically with respect to sexually dimorphic tarsomeres, body size, and armature of the anal plate.
The lineages of Stylocellidae (Arachnida: Opiliones: Cyphophthalmi)
The taxonomy of the Southeast Asian mite harvestman family Stylocellidae is updated in light of new molecular and mor-phometric phylogenies, examinations of type specimens, and a new species from

THE POLITUM GROUP (BULBATE SPECIES) OF LEIOBUNUM (ARACHNIDA: PHALANGIDA: PHALANGIIDAE) OF NORTH AMERICA1
TLDR
An attempt has been made to demonstrate, through the use of these characters, possibl e phyletic affinities between the species of each group, to gain some insight toward the recognition of an evolutionary trend within the genus Leiobunum.
SEM Studies on Arthropod Exoskeletons 2. Horseshoe crab Limulus polyphemus (L.) in comparison with extinct eurypterids and recent scorpions 1
TLDR
The exoskeleton of Limulus polyphemus (L.) (Xiphosura, Merostomata) is described on the basis of scanning electron microscopic (SEM) studies and the functional significance of the vertically lamellar structure is discussed.
Scanning Electron Microscopy of the Palp Sense Organs of the Harvestman Leiobunum townsendi (Arachnida: Opiliones)
TLDR
The sense organs on the palp of the harvestman Leiobunum townsendi are surveyed using scanning electron microscopy and these are strikingly similar to sensilla reported from spiders and other arachnids.
THE OPILIONID FAMILY CADDIDAE IN NORTH AMERICA , WITH NOTES ON SPECIES FROM OTHER REGION S (OPILIONES, PALPATORES, CADDOIDEA )
TLDR
The North American caddids appear to be mostly parthenogenetic, and C. pepperella is very likely a neotenic isolate of C. agilis.
On the tibial and patellar glands, relationships, and American genera of the spider family Leptonetidae (Arachnida, Araneae)
TLDR
Congruence between patellar plate structure and genitalic features supports the establishment of two additional genera: Appaleptoneta and Calileptoneta, described for the California and Oregon species L. barrowsi Gertsch and L. californica Banks.
The scales of salticid spiders
The form and location of the scales of salticid spiders, as revealed by light and scanning electron microscopy, provide useful diagnostic characters for the separation of species, the assignment of
The surface sculpturing of the integument of lepidopterous larvae and its adaptive significance
TLDR
The surface of the integument of 50 species of lepidopterous larvae from 11 families was examined with a scanning electron microscope and the principal types of surface sculpturing, particularly if considered in terms of how they affect the reflection of light from the air–cuticle interface, can be correlated with the life habit of the larvae.
Morphology, sense organs, and regeneration of the forelegs (whips) of the whip spider Heterophrynus elaphus (Arachnida, Amblypygi)
TLDR
The morphology of these “whips” and the sensory organs of their tarsi and tibiae are described using scanning and transmission electron microscopy and the functional and systematic implications of these findings are discussed.
Fine structure of the epicuticle of the desert scorpion, Hadrurus arizonensis, with reference to location of lipids.
TLDR
The surface and transverse sections of the epicuticle of the desert scorpion were examined by scanning and transmission electron microscopy, respectively and lipid solvents did not significantly alter the morphology of any of these layers or the contents of the wax canals that penetrate the cuticulin layer.
A cladistic analysis of the opilionid superfamily Ischyropsalidoidea, with descriptions of the new family Ceratolasmatidae, the new genus Acuclavella, and four new species
A cladistic analysis ofthe opilionid superfamily Ischyropsalidoidea revealed three groups of genera, each probably monophyletic, and recognized here as families. The family Ischyropsalididae Simon is
