This approach allows recognition of some previously unreported patterns. Major positional shifts of lyrifissures over ontogeny appear correlated with the formation of the peritremes, and some setae of leg tarsi II-IV are unexpectedly variable in both shape and presence. In addition, the two remaining members of the genus… CONTINUE READING
