On four poorly known harvestmen from New Zealand (Arachnida, Opiliones: Cyphophthalmi, Eupnoi, Dyspnoi, Laniatores) Article (PDF Available) in New Zealand Journal of Zoology 41(4) This harvestman spider in Aurora Cave, Fiordland, shows the lack of pigmentation common in subterranean life forms, which have no need of camouflage in the dark.

Cave environments are marginal for many forms of life because of the lack of light (and hence food), but some creatures still manage to eke out an existence. A new book documenting New Zealand's mysterious underworld aims to challenge the public perception of caving.

The book, Caves: Exploring New Zealand. However, the bulk of harvestman biodiversity is situated in the sub-order Laniatores, with about 4, species.

These harvestmen, which have their highest numbers in the humid forests and caves of the subtropics and tropics (particularly in South America), tend to look  very  different from their European and U.S.

cousins. The order Opiliones includes three sub-orders, all of which have representatives in the New Zealand fauna: Cyphophthalmi - the mite-like harvestmen - are small ( mm), slow-moving primitive harvestmen which resemble dark, hard-bodied mites.

About thirty species live in the soil and leaf litter of New Zealand forests. The troglobitic harvestmen Megalopsalis tumida and Hendea myersi cavernicola inhabit the Waitomo Caves in New Zealand with their luminescent prey, the glow-worm Arachnocampa luminosa.

Because they were so common in English fields during the harvest, the group has become known as harvestmen. New Zealand has a large number of unique species. They are divided into two groups: the suborder Laniatores (short-legged harvestmen) and the suborder Palpatores (long-legged harvestmen).

We investigated the internal phylogeny of Laniatores, the most diverse suborder of Opiliones, using sequence data from 10 molecular loci: 12S rRNA, 16S rRNA, 18S rRNA, 28S rRNA, cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI), cytochrome b, elongation factor-1α, histones H3 and H4, and U2 snRNA.

The Opiliones, commonly called harvestmen, comprise an order of arachnids with over described species (Machado et al., ).Opiliones diversity is divided into four morphologically divergent, highly supported clades: Cyphophthalmi, Eupnoi, Dyspnoi, and Laniatores (summarized in Giribet and Kury, ).The majority of north temperate Laniatores taxa are short-legged cryptozoic habitat Cited by:   Structure and function of the eyes of two species of opilionid from New Zealand glow-worm caves (Megalopsalis tumida: Palpatores, and Hendea myersi cavernicola: Laniatores).

The six families are currently grouped into three infraorders: the Boreophthalmi, Scopulophthalmi, and : Arachnida. Introduction. Cave habitats have long interested evolutionary biologists and ecologists – such habitats combine geographic isolation, promoting speciation and endemicity, with selective similarities, promoting convergence in life history and morphological combination of divergence and selective constraints leads to evolutionary trends that are predictable and often replicated Cited by: Structure and function of the eyes of two species of opilionid from New Zealand glow-worm caves and Hendea myersi cavernicola: Laniatores).

Maternal care is therefore restricted to the superfamily Gonyleptoidea, while paternal care has evolved in five phylogenetically independent lineages of Opiliones, including representatives of the superfamilies Cited by: 9.
