dc.description.abstract "A key is provided to the 10 known South American ricinuleid species. The synonymy of Cryptocellus simonis Hansen and Srensen with C. foedus Westwood is disclaimed. These two species and C. pseudocellatus Roewer are redescribed; illustrations of the spermathecae of C. albosquamatus Cooke and C. lampeli Cooke are provided. Three new species are described: C. whitticki from Guyana, C. becki from Brazil, and C. peckorum from Colombia. In a supplement, the recently proposed genus Heteroricinoides Dumitrescu and Juvara-Bals is newly synonymized with Cryptocellus"--P. [1]. en_US
