Abstract Background The endemic and threatened troglobites (organisms restricted to caves) Charinus eleonorae (Amblypygi) and Iandumoema uai (Opiliones), both from Olhos d’Água cave, located at Peruaçu Caves National Park (southeast Brazil), have their distribution expanded for a new locality inside of the National Park (Lapa do Cipó cave), extending their distribution at least in 9.5km2. New information This new data suggest that these arachnids can be in a differentiation process and/or there… Expand
Cladistic analysis of the Brazilian troglobitic harvestmen genus Iandumoema Pinto-da-Rocha (Opiliones : Gonyleptidae) with the description of three new species: a brief exercise over the use of troglomorphisms in cladistic analysis
TLDR
Iandumoema is a monophyletic and well supported genus, nestled among Brazilian ‘Pachylinae’, which is currently included in the species-rich and polyphyletic subfamily Pachylinee. Expand
A new highly specialized cave harvestman from Brazil and the first blind species of the genus: Iandumoema smeagol sp. n. (Arachnida, Opiliones, Gonyleptidae)
TLDR
The species is the most highly modified in the genus and its distribution is restricted only to caves in that particular area of Minas Gerais state, Brazil, where it is vulnerable and it must be considered in future conservation projects. Expand
Distribution of cave-dwelling pseudoscorpions (Arachnida) in Brazil
TLDR
The distribution of the pseudoscorpions in Brazilian caves is mapped and 12 families and 22 genera are recorded based on collections analyzed over several years, totaling 239 caves from 13 states in Brazil. Expand
Ultrastructural comparison of the eyespot and ocelli of scorpions, and implications for the systematics of Chaerilidae Pocock, 1893
TLDR
Based on ultrastructure and position, the eyespot of scorpions appears to be a highly modified lateral ocellus that lost its lens and visual function during disintegration of the compound lateral eye. Expand

The fossil record of whip spiders: the past of Amblypygi
Whip spiders (Amblypygi), as their name suggests, resemble spiders (Araneae) in some aspects, but differ from them by their heart-shaped (prosomal) dorsal shield, their prominent grasping pedipalps,Expand

A new species of Charinus from Minas Gerais State, Brazil, with comments on its sexual dimorphism (Arachnida: Amblypygi: Charinidae)
TLDR
A new species of the genus Charinus Simon 1892 from the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, which is morphologically close to C. mysticus Giupponi & Kury 2002 and shows both a marked secondary sexual dimorphism and an interesting polymorphism in the spines of the distitarsus. Expand
Diversity Patterns in the Tropics
TLDR
On the whole, global diversity of obligate cave fauna in the tropics appears lower than that of the richest temperate regions, but this may change however when biodiversity surveys of tropical caves begin totake into account microcrustacea and guanobionts. Expand
