  • Abstract Recent phylogenetic studies of Opiliones have shown that Cyphophthalmi and Phalangida (= Palpatores + Laniatores) are sister groups, but higher relationships within Phalangida remain controversial. Current debate focuses on whether Palpatores (= Caddoidea + Phalangioidea + Ischyropsalidoidea + Troguloidea) is monophyletic or paraphyletic, with Ischyropsalidoidea + Troguloidea (= Dyspnoi) being more closely related to Laniatores. The latter hypothesis was favored in recent combined… CONTINUE READING
