A medium-spatial scale distribution pattern of Pseudoscorpionida (Arachnida) in a gradient of topography (altitude and inclination), soil factors, and litter in a Central Amazonia forest reserve, Brazil.
Only Archaeognatha and Psocoptera, both groups of saprophagous, the predators Chilopoda, Neuroptera and Pseudoscorpionida, besides Gastropoda, a group that involves saprophagous and herbivorous species, were sampled in the forest fragments.
Additional groups (Hymenoptera, Isopoda, pseudoscorpionida, and psocoptera) were present sporadically and may not be associated with the composting process; their presence might reflect their relationships with other organisms and/or preferred temperature and moisture conditions within the compost piles.

striatopunctatus, which favors the dispersion of pseudoscorpions, making phoresy an effective method for their distribution, Lustrochernes is widely distributed in the Americas and its family Chernetidae is one of the most diverse of the Pseudoscorpionida in which it is common to find cases of phoresy (Beier 1948; Muchmore 1971a, 1971b).
Organisms were classified into functional groups based on ecological processes that involve soil fauna: soil engineers = ants, earthworms, Isoptera; detritivores = Dermaptera, Diplopoda, Coleoptera, Blattodea, Isopoda, Acari, Diptera; herbivores = Hemiptera, Orthoptera, Lepidoptera larvae, Mollusca, Phasmatodea; and predators = Araneae, Chilopoda, Opiliones, Pseudoscorpionida, Mantodea.
