Australasian arachnology, Number 82, August 2011

  • Welcome to Issue 82 of Australasian Arachnology. The last six months have been extremely productive for the Australasian Arachnological Society, with nine new members and numerous new papers being published by existing AAS members. It is wonderful to see such a dynamic and growing membership, and to witness the continuing fascination elicited by our remarkable arachnid fauna. Indeed, since the beginning of 2011, over 50 new species of arachnids have been described from Australasia, including pseudoscorpions and numerous spiders in the families Selenopidae, Archaeidae, Amaurobiidae, Tetragnathidae and Araneidae. The sheer diversity of undescribed arachnid species in Australasia has always posed a challenge to systematists and ecologists, but major attempts are being made to document the fauna. Take, for example, Pinkfloydia, a new genus of Tetragnathidae recently described from Western Australia!
