“…90.0 mm) as well as some of the smallest species (e.g., Masteria chalupas approx. 2.0 mm) [2]. Considered to be sedentary, most species have short-range distribution, low dispersal capabilities [3][4][5][6][7][8], and high endemicity [8]; therefore, they present interesting model systems for biogeographical, population genetic, and species delimitation research [6,9,10].…”

“…Although the diversity of South America's larger animals is fairly well known, the diversity of the invertebrate fauna (insects, molluscs, and arachnids) has not been explored to the same extent. Recently, the spider fauna of this continent were evaluated to 8302 species [2], with 99% of mygalomorph species found nowhere else on the planet [2]. In Earth Pro software; otherwise, the information is based on collection label data.…”

“…The Arachnida collections in Ecuador are currently one of the best-represented and the most exhaustively studied. 90% of the Aranea species were described by Nadine Dupérré and Elicio Tapia in several publications as part of their project on a survey of Ecuadorian spiders ( Dupérré 2022 ; Dupérré and Tapia 2020a ). Pichincha, Cotopaxi, and Napo provinces are again reported as the most explored, and the invertebrates of many localities already listed in the 2008 catalog (e.g., Reserva Otonga and Estación Científica Yasuni) continue to be studied ( Monte and Mascagni 2012 ; Erwin and Henry 2017 ; Flowers 2018 ).…”

“…The family Scytodidae is the most diverse of the group and comprises 240 species, of which 219 belong to the highly diverse genus Scytodes Latreille, 1804 (WSC 2023). Scytodes is found worldwide, with 36% of the diversity found in South America (Dupérré 2023a). Two species have been introduced to South America, S. thoracica (Latreille, 1802) and S. univittata Simon, 1882 (Belosludtsev & Gasilin 2018; Brescovit & Rheims 2000; Taucare-Rios & Bustamante 2015; Dupérré 2023a) while two species— S. fusca Walckenaer, 1837 and S. longipes Lucas, 1844—have been introduced from South America to other continents (Saaristo 1997; Brescovit & Rheims 2000; Paquin et al 2008; Dankittipakul & Singtripop 2010; Šestáková et al 2014; Dupérré 2023a).…”
