Joseph Anton Maximilian PERTY was born in 17 September 1804. He published a large work before being 30. This book has the zoological results of Spix and von Martius Brazilian Expedition.

Notable contributionsEdit

Perty's only contribution in Opiliones was an extremely important book -- the Delectus Animalium Articulatorum was a seminal paper which was the base for the study of Brazilian Laniatores undertaken by C. L. Koch a little later. Perty described in 1833 some well-known genera such as Cosmetus, Eusarcus, Goniosoma, and Stygnus.
