Abstract Cynorta conspersa (Perty 1833), the type species of Cynorta Koch 1839, is redescribed, based on abundant material from the lower Amazon basin, Brazil. A neotype is designated for this species and the species Cynorta mayi Mello-Leitão 1931 is herein considered a junior subjective synonym. Genital morphology of the species is described for the first time. An effort has been made to detect diagnostic characters for the genus Cynorta, which was used in many different senses in the past and… Expand
A new genus and eight new species of Amazonian cosmetines (Opiliones, Laniatores, Cosmetidae)
TLDR
The new genus Taito is described to include eight new species and three new structures are characterized and named, along with some morphological characters which are proven useful for systematics of the family Cosmetidae. Expand
The poorly known genus Ventrifurca Roewer, 1913 revisited (Opiliones: Cranaidae)
TLDR
A non-monotypic genus of Andean Cranaidae is defined, associated with a well-defined geographic region, and unloaded of extraneous species which belong to another family. Expand
Review of Neocynorta Roewer, 1915 with two new generic synonymies (Opiliones: Gonyleptoidea: Cosmetidae)
ABSTRACT The genus Neocynorta is here revisited, resulting in the increase of its diversity from three species to 13, maintaining only the type species N. virescens from its former conformation. TwoExpand
Revision of Nanophareus, a mysterious harvestman genus from Chile, with descriptions of three new species (Opiliones: Laniatores: Gonyleptidae)
The Chilean genus Nanophareus Roewer, 1929 is revised and three new species are described: N. araucanus sp. nov. (typelocality: Parque Nacional La Campana, Valparaiso, Chile); N. bipartitus sp. nov.Expand
A cladistic analysis of the Stygnicranainae Roewer, 1913 (Arachnida, Opiliones, Cranaidae) – where do longipalp cranaids belong?
TLDR
A character survey compiling the morphological information of the subfamily Stygnicranainae was carried out, finding a monophyletic Stygni Branainae including Tryferos Roewer, 1931 plus Stygnicsranaus and Agathocranaus including only the genus Heterocranainae, 1913. Expand
Two new species of Manaosbiidae (Opiliones: Laniatores) from Panama, with comments on interspecific variation in penis morphology
TLDR
The most variable characters were the number and relative sizes of the setae that occur on the lateral margins of the ventral plate and the shape and armature of the apex of the stylus in the Manaosbiidae species Barrona felgenhaueri and Bugabitia akini. Expand
On the enigmatic genus Philora: familial assignment and taxonomic revision (Opiliones: Laniatores: Stygnopsidae)
TLDR
The male genitalia of the genera Paramitraceras, Philora, Troglostygnopsis and presumably the genus Sbordonia, are very similar and share a morphological pattern described here as the Paramit Raceras-pattern. Expand
Characterization of the genus Hernandarioides F.O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1905 (Opiliones, Gonyleptidae, Ampycinae).
TLDR
Hernandarioides was not originally included in any subfamily of Gonyleptidae, and was included by Roewer (1913: 464) in the Hernandariinae, but transferred to the Ampycinae and explained that the grammatical gender of Hernandarios is feminine, reestablishing the original inflection Hernandarioide plana. Expand
A new family of Gonyleptoidea from South America (Opiliones, Laniatores)
A new family of Laniatores, Gerdesiidae fam. nov., is proposed based on molecular and morphological evidence. Data also indicate that this new family is the sister family of Tricommatidae.Expand
Cladistic analysis and description of three new species of the Chilean genus Nanophareus (Opiliones: Gonyleptidae: Pachylinae).
TLDR
The proposed synapomorphies for Nanophareus remain largely unchanged: an external row of enlarged tubercles inserted amongst small ones on the lateral margin of dorsal scutum; the ventro-basal margin of the pedipalpal tibia curved at 90° in lateral view; and retrolateral seta on pedipalPal tibia with an apically bifid socket (socket and seta longer than pedipal pal tibia length).
