World Checklist of Opiliones species (Arachnida). Part 2: Laniatores – Samooidea, Zalmoxoidea and Grassatores incertae sedis
This project aims to produce a general checklist of all the valid species and subspecies names of harvestmen of the world (Arachnida, order Opiliones). This database is part 2 of 12 of a project containing an intended worldwide checklist of species and subspecies of Opiliones, and it includes the superfamilies Samooidea and Zalmoxoidea plus the Grassatores currently not allocated to any family. In this Part 2, a total of 556 species and subspecies are listed.
The data in this checklist resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 556 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
