Early lineages of Gonyleptidae (Arachnida, Opiliones
In view of this, the present paper is the first that concentrates on the comparison of the phenology of Opiliones
at different elevations, as well as on the seasonal and altitudinal variation in species composition in Lefka Ori (White Mountains) on Crete.

Various arachnids (Acari, Opiliones
, Scorpiones, and Araneae) were assembled for this survey and assessed for infection with Cardinium.

Large prosomal exocrine scent glands, also called defensive or repugnatorial glands, are an important synapomorphic character of Opiliones

Arachnids are generally considered to be primarily nocturnal, although there are exceptions among representatives of the orders Araneae, Solifugae, and Opiliones
(Cloudsley-Thompson 1978; Foelix 1996; Punzo 1998; Hoenen & Gnaspini 1999).

It is a curious question why it took so long for such a book to appear on the third most diverse order, Opiliones
The putative Pennsylvanian arachnid order Kustarachnida--with effectively only one valid species--is a misidentified harvestman and has thus been included in the Opiliones
