Ecomorphology of cave pseudoscorpions of the Chthonioidea

Ecomorphology and evolution of cave pseudoscorpions of the Chthonioidea Superfamily

The central objective of this study is to determine whether there is ecomorphological convergence between phylogenetically distant species of Chthonioidea that are present in similar climatic types or different environments, as well as infer the phylogeny and divergence times of neotropical species in order to relate them to the geological events that explain the vicariance events, especially in relation to speciation of troglophile and troglomorphic forms.
