The millipede genus Chamberlinius is basically confined to Taiwan, with only one of the four known species presumably introduced to southern Japan. Both previously known species are redescribed, based on new material: Chamberlinius hualienensis Wang, 1956 (the type species) and Chamberlinius piceofasciatus (Gressitt, 1941), the latter being a new s...

Shyh-Hwang Chen (2007) Spiders of the genus Hersilia from Taiwan (Araneae: Hersiliidae). Zoological Studies 46(1): xxx-xxx. Spiders of the genus Hersilia Audouin from Taiwan were examined and revised. Four species were recognized, including Hersilia asiatica Song et Zheng, H. striata Wang et Yin, and 2 new species, H taiwanensis Chen, sp. nov. and...

Three species of the genus Cheiracanthium were newly added to the spider fauna of Taiwan. These include Cheiracanthium eutittha Bösenberg et Strand, 1906, and two new species, C. taiwanicum sp. nov. and C. fulcatum sp. nov. Each species is described or re-described and illustrated based on materials from the Chiuchiufeng area, Central Taiwan and ot...

Thirty-two karyomorphs belonging to 29 species of Eleutherotherodactylus from lower Central America and Puerto Rico were karyologically studied using C-banding and silver staining. Karyotypes of 16 species were described for the first time. Males of E. vocator have a heteromrophic pair #7 that could be sexually dimorphic, with an XX-XY sex determin...

ness was tested. Using the Hexathelidae (Macrothele holsti) as an outgroup, the phylogenetic relationships of Lycosoidea superfamily spiders were investigated. The results indicate that cribellate spiders are polyphyletic. The reconstructed tree based on both maximum parsimony and neighbor joining analyses clearly demonstrates that the cribellate s...

Shyh-Hwang Chen (1999) Cytological studies on six species of spiders from Taiwan (Araneae: Theridiidae, Psechridae, Uloboridae, Oxyopidae, and Ctenidae). Zoological Studies 38(4): 423-434. An improved newly introduced air-dried method was to prepare spider chromosomes. Chromosomal data are reported for 6 species of 5 families of spiders from Taiwan...

A population of the triploid gecko, Hemidactylus stejnegeri Ota & Hikida 1989, was found on an off-shore island of Vietnam for the first time. Chromosomal analyses and multivariate analyses of meristic and morphometric characters revealed that Vietnamese populations are slightly but significantly differentiated from the Philippine and Taiwanese pop...

The corinnid spider, Oedignatha platnicki Song et Zhu 1998 is newly recorded from northern Taiwan. It differs from O. scrobiculata Thorell 1881 from southern Taiwan by having a relatively smooth carapace and lacking any paired light spots on the abdomen, and from all the other congeners by the male having two minute teeth on the dorsal branch of ti...

A new species of clubionid spider, Matidia spatulata sp. nov., is described from the low mountain areas of Taiwan. It can be distinguished from other congeners by having a coiled, ribbon-shaped embolus and a spatulate tibial apophysis widened distally and densely covered with fine denticles on its distal end. The female remains unknown. The genus M...
