Other prey items, such as lepidopterans, hymenopterans, pseudoscorpiones
, and chilopods, were found in much lower percentages (Table 3).
Visual surveys captured an additional 11 species and were responsible for the capture of all arachnids from class Araneae and Pseudoscorpiones

With more than 3,380 described species, Pseudoscorpiones
is the fourth largest order of the arthropod class Arachnida (Harvey 2008).

Chapter 7 provides a useful referenced checklist of all other arachnids described from Dominican amber, including 18 families of Acari, in addition to the orders Amblypygi, Opiliones, Pseudoscorpiones
, Scorpiones and Solifugae.
The other three orders (Opiliones, Pseudoscorpiones
, Ricinulei) for which regression analyses were possible were much more uniform in size and shape (Table 1).
By contrast we recognize a corresponding lack of effort, or expertise, when it comes to members of the Acari, Opiliones, Pseudoscorpiones
, and the "minor" orders.
Exceptions are, besides Opiliones (see below), Pseudoscorpiones
(Weygoldt 1969), and anactinotrichid mites (Anactinotrichida = Parasitiformes s.
The purposes of this note are to report Dasychernes inquilinus Chamberlin 1929 (Arachnida, Pseudoscorpiones
, Chernetidae) from a nest of the stingless honey bee Melipona compressipes (Fabricius 1804) (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Meliponini), and summarize published information on pseudoscorpion-bee relationships.
