Die Geißelspinnensammlung (Arachnida, Amblypygi) des Naturhistorischen Museums Wien, Österreich

Abstract

We present data and remarks on the history and contents of the whip spider collection housed in the Natural History Museum of Vienna, Austria. The collection comprises a total of 167 specimens from 4 families, 10 genera and 27 species. It includes types of four species: Charinus ioanniticus (Kritscher, 1959), Damon brachialis Weygoldt, 1999, Phrynus parvulus (Pocock, 1902) and Paraphrynus mexicanus (Bilimek, 1867). Short notes on interesting objects and former curators are provided as well as an appendix with a list of species kept alive by Michael Seiter.
