A Key to the Genera of Endeostigmata and Sphaerolichida

This is a key to the genera of primitive acariform mite groups Endeostigmata and Sphaerolichida written and compiled by Dr David Evans Walter of Colorado State University and the University of Alberta with the assistance of Dr Heather Proctor of the University of Alberta.

Endeostigmatans are common in many habitats, but seem to reach their highest abundances in extreme habitats such as deserts, beaches, and polar regions. As far as is known, these mites are fungivores, algivores and predators on small invertebrates such as nematodes, tardigrades, and mites.  None are considered economically important pests.  They are most likely to be intercepted in goods containing soil, especially dry soils including sand, lichens, mosses or other materials associated with dry or otherwise extreme habitats, including anthropogenic accumulations of dust.

A Key to the genera of Australian Jumping Spiders (Araneae: Salticidae)

Identification key: https://apps.lucidcentral.org/salticidae/

The key is intended to meet the needs of naturalists, biologists and taxonomists who wish to identify Australian jumping spiders. The character set has high redundancy (99 characters, 293 character states) allowing users to begin with whatever observable characters are available to them when using photographs, a high-powered hand lens or a microscope.

An information sheet attached to each genus provides a list of known species and information on evolutionary relationships, distribution, habits, a simplified diagnosis, and some key references. A series of diagrams and photographs (of living specimens and of aspects of the morphology, including palps and epigynes) is provided for each genus.

Further information and instructions for using the key can be found in the document attached to ‘Salticidae’ in the top right hand quadrant of the key.

Please send comments, or suggestions for improving the key, and requests for assistance, to barry.richardson@csiro.au.

The key can be cited as Richardson, B.J., Whyte, R. and Żabka, M. (2019). A key to the genera of Australian jumping spiders (Aranaea: Salticidae). https://apps.lucidcentral.org/salticidae/
