Sea spiders or pycnogonids are exclusively marine invertebrates of worldwide distribution, which rarely occur in large numbers. They are often cryptic and have usually very little economic significance. Most species are epibenthic ectoparasites of invertebrates, few are interstitial or bathypelagic. Revisions for major taxa of pycnogonids do not exist, except for STOCK's (1957) contribution on the Austrodecidae. Moreover, the most part of information on pycnogonids is scattered in many short… Expand
The Pycnogonids (Arthropoda, Pycnogonida) of Torrevaldaliga (Tyrrhenian Sea), Italy, with data on Endeis biseriata, new record for the Mediterranean Sea
New data about the Mediterranean pycnogonids are given. For this contribution, we analysed 315 samples that until now had remained unidentified, collected in 1979–1980 in the Tyrrhenian Sea close t...
Discovery and re-description of the holotype of Pycnogonum gibberum (Pycnogonida: Pycnogonidae)
TLDR
The holotype of Pycnogonum gibberum was discovered in the Arachnid section of the Zoology Museum of the University of São Paulo and is re-described in this work, allowing for a more precise comparison with other species of the genus. Expand
Faunistic and biological traits of some Antarctic pycnogonida
TLDR
Taxonomic and biogeographic data on Pycnogonida collected in the course of Italian Antarctic campaigns at Terra Nova Bay and in the Straits of Magellan are presented, with some considerations on body morphology, feeding habits and reproductive traits of Colossendeis spp. Expand
Check-list of the pycnogonids from Antarctic and sub-Antarctic waters: zoogeographic implications
Abstract This study contains the current list of the austral pycnogonids together with details of their depth range and distribution. To date 264 species have been recorded, accounting for 19.6% ofExpand
Pycnogonida from the Bellingshausen and Amundsen seas: taxonomy and biodiversity
TLDR
The Bellingshausen Sea seems to be a poor area in terms of abundance and species richness compared to the Amundsen Sea and other Antarctic zones, and the abundance of individuals likely responds to the varying amount of organic matter that reaches each bathymetric zone. Expand
18S Analysis of the Taxonomic Position of an Endoparasitic Pycnogonid, Nymphonella Tapetis (Arthropoda: Pycnogonida: Ascorhynchidae)
TLDR
Nymphonellaseems is found to be an aberrant form in the Ascorhynchidae, but multi-gene analysis with more species is required for the exact determination of the taxonomic position of the genus. Expand
A new species of Hemichela Stock, 1954 from the South China Sea (Arthropoda, Pycnogonida, Ammotheidae)
TLDR
The new species, Hemichela nanhaiensis, obtained from more than 1300 m depth, is distinguished from the other two species in the genus by the characters of the chela dactylus with 12 denticulations on the inner margin and the presence of taller tubercles on the lateral processes. Expand
Erratum to: Pycnogonida from the Bellingshausen and Amundsen seas: taxonomy and biodiversity
TLDR
The Bellingshausen Sea seems to be a poor area in terms of abundance and species richness compared to the Amundsen Sea and other Antarctic zones, and the abundance of individuals likely responds to the varying amount of organic matter that reaches each bathymetric zone. Expand
Synopsis of the pycnogonids from Antarctic and Subantarctic waters
TLDR
This work summarizes existing knowledge on the faunal history, biodiversity and biogeography of the Antarctic and Subantarctic pycnogonids from more than 40 expeditions run by 14 countries, and published in 75 papers. Expand
Pycnogonida (Arthropoda) from Uruguayan waters (Southwest Atlantic): annotated checklist and biogeographic considerations.
TLDR
Records of pycnogonids from Uruguayan waters (south-western Atlantic) include 26 species cited from precise locations, and at least five other species based on unconfirmed records, showing the influence of these cold waters in the area; three others have a wide deep-sea distribution pattern. Expand

A Parasitic Association Between a Pycnogonid and a Scyphomedusa in Midwater
TLDR
The feeding habits and host specificities of the Pycnog onida are poorly known, and the possibility that some of the pycnogonids may have been captured in the water column rather than on the bottom cannot be ascertained from trawl and dredge samples. Expand
The Biology of Pycnogonida
TLDR
This chapter attempts to collate and summarize the current knowledge on all known aspects of pycnogonid biology, drawing from both the latest published and unpublished researches in this field, and is aimed at both specialists and other marine biologists. Expand
New and little-known benthic pycnogonids from North Carolina
TLDR
A new genus and three new species of Ammotheid pycnogonids are described from waters off North Carolina, U.S.A., extending the range of a fifth species to include the Western North Atlantic. Expand
SECOND LIST OF PYCNOGONIDA OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CAPE TOWN ECOLOGICAL SURVEY
TLDR
The new Nymphopsis is morphologically remarkable because the first pair of legs, which are uniunguiculate and possess a transformed propodus, differ in structure from the 2nd to 4th Legs, which have auxiliary claws and normal propodal segments. Expand

The genus Ammothea Leach (Pycnogonida) in New Zealand waters: New species and a review
TLDR
The non-Antarctic species all have pinnate or molariform compound oviger spines, but on other grounds (number of scape segments, possession of auxiliary claws, and mid-dorsal tubercles ) are shown to be morphologically diverse. Expand

Pycnogonida collected in interstitia of coral sand and rubble in the Netherlands Antilles. Amsterdam Expeditions to the West Indian Islands, Report 58
Seven species of Pycnogonida are recorded from the islands of Curacao and Bonaire, living in coral debris (sand, rubble), often quite deep (40—80 cm) in the sediment. Two species (both new) occur inExpand

TLDR
A large and varied fauna is found associated with the sponge and the prominent species appear to be distributed according to depth, this being probably a function of current speed. Expand
Pycnogonida from the southwestern Indian Ocean
Sixteen species of coastal or shelf Pycnogonida have been recorded from Madagascar, the Comoro Islands, and Mauritius. Two of these, Nymplion crosnieri and Pallenoides opuntia, are new to science.Expand
