Numbers of described families, genera, and species (as well as estimations of existing species) are given for all taxa which represent the Arachnida and Myriapoda world-wide and in Amazonia. 

Arthropods (Terrestrial), Amazonian

On a new species of Cryptocellus from the brazilian Amazon (Arachnida, Ricinulei)

Cryptocellus abaporu sp. n. is described based on material of both sexes from JiParana, southwest Rondonia, Brazil, which represents the southernmost record of the genus. The new species appears to

A new species of Cryptocellus (Arachnida, Ricinulei) from Oriental Amazonia

TLDR
The new species appears to be similar to C. peckorum Platnick & Shadab, 1977 by the moderately expanded metatarsus III, bearing a metatarsal process with a flattened tip.

Vertical and time distribution of Pseudoscorpiones (Arthropoda: Arachnida) in a floodplain forest in the Brazilian Pantanal

TLDR
The analyses did not show any temporal variation as to abundance or richness of Pseudoscorpiones in each evaluated habitat; however, the analysis showed that the edaphic environment (soil + termite nests, tree trunks and tree canopies are distinct habitats in relation to the composition of the assemblage.

Abundance and phenology of Schizomida (Arachnida) from a secondary upland forest in Central Amazonia

TLDR
The lack of a distinct reproductive period and the presence of juveniles (in particular the first nymphal instar) and adults (both sexes) throughout the year indicate a plurivoltine mode of life.

Myriapods (Myriapoda). Chapter 7.2

TLDR
The introduction of some species into Europe could have begun already in historical times with an increase in trade between ancient Greeks and Romans with cities in the Near East and North Africa, and with the trade between Europe and some tropical countries, especially after the discoveries of the Americas and Australia.

Myriapod (Arthropoda, Myriapoda) diversity and distribution in a floodplain forest of the Brazilian Pantanal

TLDR
The survival strategies observed in Diplopoda and Chilopoda demonstrate the adaptation of these species to the seasonal floods of this ecosystem.

Myriapods (Arthropoda, Myriapoda) in the Pantanal of Poconé, Mato Grosso, Brazil

TLDR
The Myriapoda species richness, as well as the high number of new records in recent studies reinforce the importance of the northern region of the Pantanal biome as a diversity center with potential priority for measures aimed at the conservation of its many habitats.

CONTRIBUTION TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE ARACHNIDS IN THE YUCATAN PENINSULA, MEXICO (EXCLUDING ARANAE AND ACARI)

TLDR
In order to have a better understanding of the diversity of arachnid species, it is important to promote biological compendiums and sampling programs, which will improve the representation of this group and probably increasing the number of local species.

Population dynamics and phenology of the wall crab spider Selenops cocheleti Simon, 1880 (Araneae: Selenopidae) in Southeastern Brazil

TLDR
New insights are provided into the life-history of S. cocheleti and how climatic variables and prey abundance influence the population abundance of the different age classes and adult sexes.
