Notes on some Old World schizomids of the genera Ovozomus and Schizomus (Schizomida: Hubbardiidae)

WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 12 months ago

ABSTRACT – To clarify the systematic status of several Asian schizomid species, type specimens of several species were examined. Schizomus (Trithyreus) lunatus Gravely from India is transferred to Ovozomus Harvey, forming the new combination Ovozomus lunatus (Gravely). Schizomus similis Hirst from India, and S. remyi Lawrence from Réunion are new junior synonyms of O. lunatus, which is newly recorded from Christmas Island and Cook Islands. Schizomus (Trithyreus) peradeniyensis Gravely from Sri Lanka is redescribed and transferred to the genus Ovozomus, forming the new combination Ovozomus peradeniyensis (Gravely). Schizomus perplexus Gravely from Sri Lanka, recently moved to Notozomus Harvey, is returned to the genus Schizomus. Trithyreus suboculatus Pocock (from Sri Lanka) is designated as a nomen dubium as the holotype is an unidentifi able juvenile.
