School/Research organisations


The first DNA barcode for the as yet unnamed species of harvestmen known as Leiobunum sp. A is presented, in addition to a preliminary phylogeny of the genus based on mitochondrial sequence data. It is hoped that the availability of this sequence will further efforts to discover the source population of these harvestmen, and facilitate species delimitation and phylogenetic analyses.
