Taxonavigation

Ordo: Opiliones
Familia: Epedanidae

Name

Plistobunus Pocock, 1903Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

  • Plistobunus Pocock 1903[1]: 447; Roewer 1912[2]: 232; 1923[3]: 207; 1938[4]: 124; Lian et al. 2011[5]: 41.

Type species

Plistobunus rapax Pocock, 1903, by original designation.

Extended diagnosis

Medium-sized epedanines (2.40–3.57 mm) with a long median spine on the ocularium. Prosoma with a row of 4–6 setiferous tubercles on each side of the frontal margin. Areae II and IV with or without long spines. The basichelicerite of chelicerae elongate and armed with numerous tubercles, dorsally with three in males and with two in female (Lian et al. 2011[5]: 42, figs 2, 3; 44: 9, 10; 46: 18, 19. Figs 33–35, 47–49). Pedipalpal femur of male ventrally with 9–13 seta-tipped tubercles, and distally with one or two tubercles on medial side. Pedipalpal patella with at least three seta-tipped tubercles. Distitarsus of leg I with two segments. The distal part of pars basalis of penis widened and with a stereoscopic ventral plate. Stylus columnar. Capsula interna ventrally and capsula externa dorsally surround the stylus.

Included species

Plistobunus rapax Pocock, 1903, Plistobunus columnariusLian et al., 2011[5], and Plistobunus jaegeri sp. nov.

Distribution

China (Hong Kong and Hainan Island), Thailand (Ubon Ratchathani).

Sexual dimorphism

The species of this genus possess conspicuous sexual dimorphism in the armature of the appendages. The tubercles or spines in male on the basichelicerite of chelicerae, and those of the femur of pedipalps and legs are much more robust or conspicuous than those of in female; the shape of body is very similar in both sexes.
The numbers of seta-tipped tubercles distally on medial side of pedipalpal femur gives an impression of the differences between the species. Male specimens of P. rapax and P. columnarius are described with two (Lian et al. 2011[5]: 42, fig. 6; 44, fig. 14) and those of P. jaegeri sp. nov. with only one such tubercle (Fig. 38). Females of P. columnarius (Lian et al. 2011[5]: 46, fig. 22) and P. jaegeri sp. nov. (Fig. 52) possess no tubercles of this size or position (female of P. rapax unknown).
