  author={Steffen Bayer},
Various publications of the last twelve years have shown that the species richness of the genus Psechrus is much higherthan was assumed 30 years ago. Based upon trends in the structures of the copulatory organs, for the first time, eight spe-cies groups are recognised and, including the present study, 46 species are now known. 20 species are recognised anddescribed as new: P. ulcus sp. nov., P. aluco sp. nov., P. decollatus sp. nov., P. elachys sp. nov., P. norops sp. nov., P. arcuatus sp. nov… Expand
Seven new species of Psechrus and additional taxonomic contributions to the knowledge of the spider family Psechridae (Araneae).
P. norops, P. libelti and an unidentified Psechrus species from Baluno, Mindanao are for the first time characterised and illustrated by their pre-epigynes and pre-vulvae. Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of the spider family Psechridae inferred from molecular data, with comments on the Lycosoidea (Arachnida : Araneae)
Investigation of the relative phylogenetic position of the spider genera Psechrus Thorell and Fecenia Simon using molecular data of the nuclear 28S rRNA gene and the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene indicated no support for a monophyletic family Psechridae. Expand
Psechrus kunmingensis: description of male and supplementary description of female, with discussion on intraspecific variation (Araneae, Psechridae, Psechrus)
Based on the largest collection of Psechrus kunmingensis specimens ever assembled, it is found a remarkably high level of morphological variation in this species. Expand
An unusual new wolf spider species from the Erg Chebbi Desert in Morocco (Araneae: Lycosidae: Evippinae)
It is concluded that a comprehensive revision and phylogenetic study of all African genera of the subfamily Evippinae are needed to enable unambiguous identification (including unambiguous genus identification) and for a better understanding of phylogenetic relationships among these genera. Expand
Laos, together with neighbouring Vietnam, has been recognized as one of the hotspots of biodiversity in the recent years. Many of the new species found are associated with karst, thus a similar highExpand
