Harvestmen are one of the largest groups of arachnids with more than 6,500 species distributed in 1,500 genera and 50 families. However, the interactions between harvestmen and arthropod-pathogenic fungi have rarely been studied. Certain previous studies report that fungal attack represents one of the most important factors for the mortality of har...
Host manipulation has already been documented in several distinct host-parasite associations, covering all major phyla of living organisms. While in animals we know that several species have the ability to manipulate their hosts for the benefit of the parasite, in arthropopathogenic fungi there is very little knowledge about possible behavioral man...
The hymenopteran genus Zatypota Forster, 1869 (Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae, Ephialtini) comprises highly specialized koinobiont ectoparasitoids of spiders and is the largest genus of the Polysphincta group of genera in the world, with more than 50 described species. The vast majority of species of Zatypota are parasitoids of the spider family Theridii...
The spider genus Macrophyes O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1893 includes five species from the Neotropical region (World Spider Catalog 2019). Two species were described from Central America, M. attenuata, the type species, by Pickard-Cambridge (1893), known until now only by the male, and M. elongata by Chickering (1937) know by both sexes. Three other spe...
