A new genus of Tricommatinae from Eastern Brazil (Opiliones Laniatores Gonyleptidae)
Download Full Text
The new genus Caramaschia from the Brazilian State of Bahia is proposed in the family Gonyleptidae based on the newly described species Caramaschia singularis. Although it can be placed in the subfamily Tricommatinae with confidence, its external morphology shows a mixture of extraneous features resembling different families of Gonyleptoidea. Remarkable features of Caramaschia include the absence of a common eye mound, a convex and strongly spined pedi-palpal femur and a stout cheliceral apophysis.
