oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Four new South African Solifugae (Arachnida)

 

Abstract

New forms of this order of Arachnida are not frequently met with since the group has now been fairly intensively studied in South Africa. I am therefore all the more indebted to the following collectors who have made these specimens available to me for study. From Mr F. Gaerdes of Okahandja. S. W. Africa, I have received a new subspecies of Biton; from Dr R. van Pletzen of the University of Orange Free State, Bloemfontein, a new species of Solpuguna; Mr D. Broadley of the Umtali Museum, Southern Rhodesia sent me a new species of Solpuga and finally Dr Uys de Villiers Pienaar, Biologist to the Kruger National Park, collected a new form of Solpugema.
