A new species of the family Cunaxidae, Neoscirula reticulata Skvarla n. sp., is described from two locations in the Ozark Highlands of North America. The importance of biodiversity research in this understudied region is discussed, as well as the biogeographic connection between the Interior Highlands and highlands of Mexico in relation to this species. Also, in concordance with recent advances in taxonomic procedures, both N. reticulata and all other described species of Neoscirula have been registered with Zoobank. A comprehensive list of these species, incorporating citations of their original description and Zoobank LSID numbers, is provided to aid future researchers. Images were created using digital illustration techniques designed to speed-up the description process and were subsequently deposited into Morphbank. Finally, an updated key to the adults of world species is included.


The male and immature stages of Pseudocheylus americanus (Ewing, 1909) (Pseudocheylidae) are described and illustrated for the first time and the female is re-illustrated. The description of Pseudobonzia reticulata (Heryford, 1965) (Cunaxidae) is modified to include the presence of dorsal setae f 2, which were not reported in the original description. In addition, Bonzia yunkeri Smiley, 1992 and Parabonzia bdelliformis (Atyeo, 1958) (Cunaxidae) are reported from the Ozark Mountains, Caeculus cremnicolus Enns, 1958 (Caeculidae) is reported from the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains, and Dasythyreus hirsutus Atyeo, 1961 (Dasythyreidae) is reported from Missouri and the Ouachita Mountains in Arkansas.

Four species of the family Cunaxidae (Acari: Acariformes), i.e. Armascirus ozarkensis sp. nov., A. pennsylvanicus sp. nov., A. primigenius sp. nov., and Dactyloscirus pseduophilippinensis sp. nov. are described and illustrated from the Ozark Highlands, Mississippi, and Appalachian Plateau. In addition, three described species, Armascirus gimplei, A. har-risoni, and Dactyloscirus dolichosetorus are reported from these areas. All new and previously described species have been registered with Zoobank. A list of species, including citations of their original description and Zoobank LSID numbers, and keys to world species of both genera have been included. Copyright © 2012 · Magnolia Press.
