Forster 1954

The New Zealand Harvestmen is an important reference for Opiliones from New Zealand. In this work Forster described the family Synthetonychiidae for his single genus Synthetonychia and all its species, and revised the Triaenonychidae from New Zealand, proposing many nomenclatorial acts.
