We now report that the giant whip scorpion, Mastigoproctus giganteus (Lucas) (Arachnida: Uropygi) consumes Floridobolus, even if the quinone-based secretion is released upon attack.
They were inadvertently caught in pitfall traps used to capture large arthropods including theraphosid spiders (Orthognatha, Aphonopelina hentzi), wind scorpions (Solifugae, Eremobatidae, Eremobates sp.), scorpions (Scorpiones, Buthidae, Vaejovidae), whipscorpions (Uropygi, Thelyphonidae, Mastigoproctus giganteus), orthopteran insects (Acrididae) and millipedes (Diplopoda).
First global molecular phylogeny and biogcographical analysis of two arachnid orders (Schizomida and Uropygi) supports a tropical Pangean origin and mid-Cretaceous diversification.
New and rare fossil Arachnida in Cretaceous Burmese amber (Amblypygi, Ricinulei and Uropygi: Thelephonida).
As far as we know, nothing similar to that has been reported in other arachnid orders, suggesting that these gland openings could be synapomorphic for the clade Uropygi (sensu Shultz 1990).
Uropygi.--Nine species of fossil whip scorpion are listed by Harvey (2003:73-74, 79-80); and one further Pennsylvanian species was overlooked.
We attempted to address the problems outlined above by making a comprehensive and robust evaluation of the value of primary, secondary, and plantation forests for a Neotropical epigeic arachnid fauna (encompassing the orders Amblypygi, Araneae, Opiliones, Scorpiones, and Uropygi).
Three arachnid orders, Amblypygi, Uropygi, and Palpigradi share a narrow pedicel with Araneae, but the pro/ opisthosoma connection in spiders is especially flexible, probably to promote mobility of the spinnerets.
