Was wondering if we could get a thread going on Uropygi information. there is some good stuff ou tthere but i have a hard time finding it. Some good stuff here as well.

here is a start, please add to it.

SYSTEMATICS OF THE ARACHNID ORDER UROPYGIDA http://www.americanarachnology.org/JoA_free/JoA_v1_n1/JoA_v1_p55.pdf

THE NEGLECTED COUSINS: WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE SMALLER ARACHNID ORDERS?
http://www.americanarachnology.org/JoA_Congress/JoA_v30_n2/arac-30-02-357.pdf

STEP-COUPLED FLUCTUATIONS IN PROSOMAL PRESSURE MAY CONSTRAIN STEPPING RATES IN WHIPSCORPIONS
http://www.americanarachnology.org/JoA_free/JoA_v20_n2/JoA_v20_p148.pdf

Very General info sites:
Trithyreus shoshonensis http://www.natureserve.org/explorer/servlet/NatureServe?searchName=Trithyreus+shoshonensis

the wiki i guess... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uropygi

a nice simple list of family, genera and specie. i am not too sure how accurate it is though... http://insects.tamu.edu/research/collection/hallan/Uropygi1.txt

a book: "Catalogue of the Smaller Arachnid Orders of the World: Amblypygi, Uropygi, Schizomida, Palpigradi, Ricinulei and Solifugae"

Here is a photo e-mailed to me sexing Typopeltis crucifer. Sorry i dont know who to credit, so post if its your or if you dont want it posted.

and here is a photo of the above sp with eggs.



any more?

Fully agree with your idea.
I'll check my files to see if I have any more Uropygi papers and post it here.

Credit for the sexing photo goes to Jeremy Huff and I dont think the species is Typopeltis crucifer, I think its a species from Thailand ?? but I'm not sure.

awsome photos! papers would be great! anything though that is usefull!

I was wonderin about thsoe sexing pics and specie as well (although i think t. crucifer is found in Thailand, no?). Either way mine look very similar to the photos so i am thinking they are at least Typopeltis sp. i have seen a couple other good websites about it but cannot find them anymore. lets keep updating this one.

Ganoderma,

There is an article coming out in an upcoming Invertebrate magazine article that will describe the whole process.

Thanks,

@ Steven: What kind of soil mixture are you using at Mastigoproctus?
i'll answer this in Dutch ;)
"een bodemlaag van zwarte potgrond,... daarboven een laag leem/potgrond, bovenste laag leemzand gemengd met rivierzand."

How in the heck did you get those pics? were against the glass? amazing! All mine managed to burrow in the middle of the cage...

is the article you are talking about by Jack Brookhart? I am waiting for that one, but thought it was about Solifugae, no?

Here is a pic I posted before but since this is an Uropygi specific thread I think it deserves to be included :)



Here is a big copy of the same photo with lots of detail available in case someone needs it.

@ Mike I love your photos and especialy the 4th one!! simply amazing!!

Ganoderma,

Thanks and she burrowed from the middle of the cage all the way down to the bottom glass at the back of the cage.

The article I am talking about is one I wrote on breeding M. giganteus, it should be out soon in Invertebrate magazine.

rex_arachne,

Thanks.

vardoulas,

Thanks and awesome picture. I love it when they do that, great shot of it. I like the fourth one too, it reminds me of a cave in a bad science fiction B movie.

Thanks,
mike
