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

Volume 26, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



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.
