Abstract Guasinia persephone, a new species of the family Guasiniidae, is described from the soil of an inundation forest in Brazilian Amazonia. This family was hitherto only known from two species from Venezuela. Male genitalia of the new species are described in detail. A close relationship of Guasiniidae with Zalmoxidae and Fissiphalliidae is proposed on basis of genital morphology. This is the third species of blind Laniatores from Brazil and the first from leaf mold, one is from termite… 

A new species of Fissiphalliidae from Brazilian Amazon Rain Forest (Arachnida: Opiliones)

The fourth species of the family Fissiphalliidae is described, FISSiphallius martensi new species, from Reserva Ducke, Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil, by having ventral plate sword-like, sulcus II straight, the presence of a high spine on the eye mound, and the genital operculum shorter than stigmatic area.

New species of Fissiphallius Martens 1988 from Brazil and notes on the mor-phology of Fissiphalliidae (Arachnida, Opiliones)

The seventh species of Fissiphallidae, Fissiphallius orube sp. nov., and the fourth from Brazil (type locality state of Acre, Cruzeiro do Sul, at the Moa river), is described. The new species differs

A new family of Laniatores (Arachnida:Opiliones) from the Afrotropics

Evidence from recent molecular phylogenetic studies that corroborate the independence of Pyramidopidae, fam.

Two new species of the enigmatic genus Stenophareus (Opiliones: Laniatores: Stygnidae) from the Venezuelan Guiana Shield

Two new species of Stenophareus are described from the Guiana Shield region of Venezuela, characterized by ocular and tegumentary depigmentation and by extreme pedipalp and leg elongation, representing the first troglomorph stygnid.

World Checklist of Opiliones species (Arachnida). Part 2: Laniatores – Samooidea, Zalmoxoidea and Grassatores incertae sedis

This database is part 2 of 12 of a project containing an intended worldwide checklist of species and subspecies of Opiliones, and it includes the members of the suborder Laniatores, infraorder Grassatores of the superfamilies Samooidea and Zalmoxoidea plus the genera currently not allocated to any family (i.e. grassatores incertae sedis).

Diversity of Terrestrial Invertebrates in Subterranean Habitats

This chapter deals with the diversity of terrestrial cave invertebrates from the viewpoint of its contribution to global diversity and of the variety of morphological traits and life forms associated

Comparative study of the morphology of the gland opening area among Grassatores harvestmen (Arachnida, Opiliones, Laniatores)

It is concluded that most non-gonyleptoid Grassatores share a series of characteristics, mostly strongly different from what is observed within the gonylePToids, and that smaller groups seem to share diagnostic features related to chemical defence.

A multilocus approach to harvestman (Arachnida: Opiliones) phylogeny with emphasis on biogeography and the systematics of Laniatores

Age estimates for the main Opiliones lineages suggest a Carboniferous diversification of Cyphophthalmi, while its sister group, Phalangida, diversified in the Early Devonian, and most major lineages predate the Cretaceous.

Stridulation by cosmetid harvestmen (Arachnida: Opiliones)

Comparative morphological data supports the hypothesis that there are cosmetid harvestmen that may use surface features on the chelicerae and pedipalps to produce vibrations which may function as a secondary defense mechanism.

A NEW FAMILY OF LANIATORES FROM NORTHWESTERN SOUTH AMERICA (ARACHNIDA, OPILIONES)

The new family Icaleptidae is described, characterized by genitalic features and by the ventral insertion of legs IV, which gives the animal a flea-like habitus.

A new remarkable troglomorphic gonyleptid from Brazil (Arachnida, Opiliones, Laniatores)

This species shows remarkable troglomorphisms, such as complete depigmentation, very elongate appendages, very high tarsal segmentation and complete loss of the ocular structures, which is the first anophthalmic cave dwelling harvestman from Brazil.
