The new Southeast Asian goblin spider genus Aposphragisma (Araneae, Oonopidae): diversity and phylogeny.
TLDR
The members of the new genus Aposphragisma are ground-dwelling litter inhabitants restricted to Southeast Asian lowland and montane forests, with more than 60% of the species only known from single localities and presumed to be negatively affected by the massive destruction of pristine forest habitats within their range.

The goblin spiders (Araneae, Oonopidae) of the OTONGA Nature Reserve in Ecuador, with the description of seven new species
The goblin spiders (Araneae, Oonopidae) of the Otonga Nature Reserve in the Chocó region of Ecuador are reviewed. A total of 1034 adult specimens were collected in 2014 and 23 morphospecies in eightExpand
On Puan, a New Genus of Goblin Spiders from Argentina (Araneae, Dysderoidea, Oonopidae)
TLDR
A new genus of Oonopidae, Puan, is described from Argentina, which resembles the oonopid genus Unicorn Platnick and Brescovit but differs in male palpal morphology, and lacks the clypeal horn characteristic of Unicorn. Expand
The Soft-Bodied Goblin Spiders of the New Genus Noonops (Araneae, Oonopidae)
ABSTRACT A new genus, Noonops, is established to contain 23 species of soft-bodied, New World oonopine spiders that differ from those of Oonops Templeton and similar genera in having the male palpalExpand
Taxonomic Review of the Goblin Spiders of the Genus Dysderoides Fage and Their Himalayan Relatives of the Genera Trilacuna Tong and Li and Himalayana, New Genus (Araneae: Oonopidae)
TLDR
The genitalic and somatic morphology of the three genera suggest that they conform a monophyletic group, here named “Dysderoides complex,” and that their closer relatives can be found among Prethopalpus Baehr et al., and other genera related to Silhouettella Benoit. Expand
Taxonomic Revision of the Jumping Goblin Spiders of the Genus Orchestina Simon, 1882, in the Americas (Araneae: Oonopidae)
TLDR
85 new species of Orchestina are described and all previously known species are redescribed based on recent material from Costa Rica, Colombia, and Ecuador; the female is also described for the first time. Expand
Small scale endemism in Brazil's Atlantic Forest: 14 new species of Mesabolivar (Araneae, Pholcidae), each known from a single locality.
TLDR
The present paper focuses on pholcid spider species in the genus Mesabolivar, and compares diversity and distribution patterns of this genus within and outside the Atlantic Forest. Expand
Tarsal Organ Morphology and the Phylogeny of Goblin Spiders (Araneae, Oonopidae), with Notes on Basal Genera
TLDR
Based on a survey of a wide variety of oonopid genera and outgroups, it is hypothesized that new synapomorphies uniting the Oonopidae (minus the South African genus Calculus Purcell, which is transferred to the Orsolobidae) are hypothesized. Expand
Population genetic structure of Indo-West Pacific carcharhinid sharks: what do we know and where to from here?
TLDR
The literature provides a basis for understanding the population genetic structure of IWP carcharhinids, but future research needs to focus on the application of population genomics and more robust experimental design so that population Genetic structure can be quantified with higher certainty and resolution over finer spatial scales.

Beyond size: sexual dimorphisms in pholcid spiders
Abstract The extreme sexual size dimorphism of some spiders has long attracted the attention of biologists and triggered countless prominent studies on the phenomenon. This, in turn, has resulted inExpand

TLDR
The goblin spider genus Camptoscaphiella is delimited to include only those species with the combined presence of a greatly enlarged male palpal patella, a palpal bulb well separated from the cymbium, male endites with anteromedian brushlike scopula, and female genitalia with an external copulatory opening.
