Abstract

Neocarus jonasi n.sp. is described from three limestone caves of the Bambui Group geomophological formation, Minas Gerais state, Brazil, with a combination of a higher number of palp genu and tibia r setae and palp tarsus sm and d setae. Its relationship to Neocarus spelaion and the importance of setae variation in Opilioacaridae is discussed. A key to the genus Neocarus is also provided. (AU)
