Full-text available
Thiratoscirtina is an African endemic subtribe of aelurilline jumping spiders. Among the 18 genera belonging here, the genus Pochyta Simon, 1901 and its ten currently recognized species is yet to be revised, and the described species have been not studied from a taxonomical perspective. We examined all the species thought to belong here based on th...
Article
Two new species of the currently monotypic thiratoscirtine genera Ajaraneola Wesołowska & Russell-Smith, 2011 and Nimbarus Rollard & Wesołowska, 2002 are described from Uganda and Cameroon: Ajaraneola pajakwandy sp. nov. (male) and Nimbarus nimbus sp. nov. (male), respectively. With the new species, previous diagnoses of the genera are re-evaluated...
Article
New taxonomic data are provided on the ladybird spider genus Eresus Walckenaer, 1805 in Turkey and Iran. Eresus adaleari Zamani & Szűts, sp. n. is described as a new species, on the basis of a single male specimen collected in Semnan Province, northeastern Iran, and Eresus lavrosiae Mcheidze, 1997, previously known solely from the original descript...

A previously unreported radiation of myrmarachnine jumping spiders from New Guinea is described, which, although having few known species, is remarkably diverse in body forms. This clade is the new subtribe Levieina, represented by seven new species in three new genera. Within Levieagen. n. are three new species, L.herbertisp. n., L.lornaesp. n., a...

Aim As a continental island, much of the biota of New Zealand was initially thought to have been shaped by vicariance. Recent studies, however, have highlighted the role of dispersal, with some even suggesting that the entire biota is the product of dispersal events following emergence of the islands. This study focuses on the interplay between dis...
Article
Spatial variation in biodiversity is one of the key pieces of information for the delimitation and prioritisation of protected areas. This information is especially important when the protected area includes different climatic and habitat conditions and communities, such as those along elevational gradients. Here we test whether the megadiverse com...
Article
In this paper we propose Trebacosa brunhesi Villepoux, 2007 as a junior synonym of Trebacosa europaea Szinetár & Kan-csal, 2007 based on the examination of specimens from all the localities from where those species are known. Illustration of the type species of the genus, Trebacosa marxi (Stone, 1890) and specimens from all known localities of T. e...

We present a phylogenetic analysis of spiders using a dataset of 932 spider species, representing 115 families (only the family Synaphridae is unrepresented), 700 known genera, and additional representatives of 26 unidentified or undescribed genera. Eleven genera of the orders Amblypygi, Palpigradi, Schizomida and Uropygi are included as outgroups....

Full-text available
The relationships of the unusual salticid spider Depreissia from central Africa and Borneo have been difficult to resolve, obscured by its highly modified ant-like body. Phylogenetic analysis of the gene 28S strongly supports its placement outside the major clade Salticinae and within the clade of cocalodines, spartaeines and lapsiines, with weaker...

The family Eresidae C. L. Koch, 1850 is reviewed at the genus level. The family comprises nine genera including one new genus. They are: Adonea Simon, 1873, Dorceus C. L. Koch, 1846, Dresserus Simon, 1876, Eresus Walckenaer, 1805, Gandanameno Lehtinen, 1967, Loureedia gen. n., ParadoneaLawrence, 1968, Seothyra Purcell, 1903, and Stegodyphus Simon,...

Based on a survey of a wide variety of oonopid genera and outgroups, we hypothesize new synapomorphies uniting the Oonopidae (minus the South African genus Calculus Purcell, which is transferred to the Orsolobidae). The groundplan of the tarsal organ in Oonopidae is hypothe sized to be an exposed organ with a distinctive, longitudinal ridge origina...

The first lowland species of the alpine genus Parasyrisca, Parasyrisca arrabonica Szinetár & Eichardt, sp. n., is described from the sandy grasslands of Hungary. The genus was hitherto known only from Western Europe (Pyrenees and Western Alps) and Eastern Europe (Crimea), and although records from Slovenia and Romania were known, these are listed i...

The evolutionary diversification of spiders is attributed to spectacular innovations in silk. Spiders are unique in synthesizing many different kinds of silk, and using silk for a variety of ecological functions throughout their lives, particularly to make prey-catching webs. Here, we construct a broad higher-level phylogeny of spiders combining mo...

Intensive fieldwork has been undertaken in Portugal in order to develop a standardized and optimized sampling protocol for Mediterranean spiders. The present study had the objectives of testing the use of semi-quantitative sampling for obtaining an exhaustive species richness assessment of spiders and testing the effects of day, time of day, collec...

Declines of West-European farmland biodiversity have been associated with intensive agricultural practices, Central and Eastern European grasslands still harbour a diverse and unique arthropod community. However, our understanding of the effects of farmland management both at local and landscape levels is rather limited there. A paired field approa...

. 1A thorough inventory of a Mediterranean oak forest spider fauna carried out during 2 weeks is presented. It used a semi-quantitative sampling protocol to collect comparable data in a rigorous, rapid and efficient way. Four hundred and eighty samples of one person-hour of work each were collected, mostly inside a delimited 1-ha plot.2Sampling yie...
Article
The monotypic jumping spider genus Tarne Simon, 1886 is redescribed from both sexes, based on material identified by its author, Eugene Simon. Type material is lost, but no neotype has been designated. New data on the distribution are given, along with drawings, digital images and scanning electron micrographs.

Európa fele, hazánk kétharmada mezőgazdasági művelés alatt áll. Emiatt a mezőgazdálkodás élővilágra gyakorolt hatásának ismerete kulcsfontosságú természetvédelmi biológiai kutatási téma. Egy EU 5 KP projekt (EASY) keretében extenzíven és intenzíven legeltetett szarvasmarhalegelőket hasonlítottunk össze 348 növény-, 46 madár- és 806 ízeltlábú-faj kv...

Conference Paper
Nitrogen ions were implanted into (100) GaAs at high temperature (400 and 600degreesC) and high dose (2 x 10(17) and 6 x 10(17) ionS/cm(2)) in order to synthesize small GaN crystallites. The defective strip due to implantation is about 500 urn thick and stacking faults appeared as the characteristic defect. Selected area diffraction patterns show t...

Aim of the project ist to show drawings and photos of TYPE-Series including the relevant labels. Based on the initiative of Prof. Maddison we started the project to build up a database of TYPE-series deposited in different collections worldwide. A big amount of material and illustrations are already implemented in the database - Wayne and Tamas gathered a lot of photos wich will be implemented in the next time. Anybody who is interested to work with us in that project is welcome!
