Description of new species of Amblypygi

Description of new species of Amblypygi of the genus Charinus (Charinidae) of Brazilian caves.

Charinus is the most diverse and widely distributed genus of Amblypygi in the world's ecosystems. Their geographical distribution covers almost every continent, however, its highest number of known species is concentrated in the Neotropics. The project aims to describe new Charinus species found in caves sampled by the Subterranean Biology team, and contribute to the taxonomy and conservation of the group in question.
