A new species of harvestman of the genus Mitopus in Britain

Authors


Abstract

A new species of Mitopus, found in upland regions of Britain, is described. It occurs sympatrically with M. morio in the upper altitudinal parts of the latter's range. The two species are distinguished by their differences in morphology, biometrics and phenology. The new species of Mitopus is larger and longer-legged than M. morio, and develops faster, reaching maturity at an earlier date.
