“…Cosmetid harvestmen exhibit their highest levels of species richness in southern Mexico, Central America, northern South America, and the Caribbean islands (Kury and Pinto‐da‐Rocha, ). We chose to examine interspecific variation in the external morphology of the ovipositors of these harvestmen because the taxonomy of the group is in desperate need of revision (Goodnight and Goodnight, ; Kury et al, ; Townsend et al, ; Pinto‐da‐Rocha and Hara, ; Pinto‐da‐Rocha and Yamaguti, ) and could benefit from the discovery of new, informative characters for diagnosing genera and differentiating species. Specifically, we used scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to investigate the morphology of the distal surface of the ovipositor and the numbers, relative sizes, surface textures, and distal tips of the peripheral setae on the distal surface of the ovipositor.…”

“…Under the Roewerian system, species are differentiated on the bases of the pattern of dorsal coloration, sexually dimorphic structures, relative lengths of legs I–IV, and relative size of the dorsal scutum (e.g., Roewer, ; Goodnight and Goodnight, ). Recent taxonomic studies of cosmetid harvestmen from Brazil have used a variety of novel characters including the outline of the dorsal scutum (Kury et al, ), shape of the eye mound (Pinto‐da‐Rocha and Hara, ), shape, and armature of the femur and tibia of the pedipalp (Pinto‐da‐Rocha and Hara, ; Kury and Ferreira, ), visibility (from above) and size of coxa IV of the male (Pinto‐da‐Rocha and Hara, ), and the microanatomy of the penis (Kury et al, ; Ferreira and Kury, ; Pinto‐da‐Rocha and Hara, ; Pinto‐da‐Rocha and Yamaguti, ).…”

“…ZOOLOGIA 32(5): 409-422, October 2015 for the recognition of genera and species (AVRAM & SOARES 1983, GONZALEZ-SPONGA 1992, 1998, KURY & FERREIRA 2012, PINTO-DA-ROCHA & HARA 2011, PINTO-DA-ROCHA & YAMAGUTI 2013, SOARES & SOARES 1987, TOWNSEND et al 2010. However, only a few cosmetid genera can be recognized using genitalic and somatic features (see FERREIRA & KURY 2010, PINTO-DA-ROCHA & HARA 2011, KURY & BARROS 2014.…”
