Taxonomy of Opiliones - Minor Japanese authors

< back to Arachnology    < back to OmniPaper index


Because formatting japanese characters is tricky, I gathered all minor Japanese authors in this page. The two most important Japanese authors are by far Suzuki and Tsurusaki.

The excellent Ikio Sato (1902-1945) only published jointly with Suzuki before his untimely death by the American Atomic bomb, and his papers are here.

Then we can count Nakatsuji, Kichida and Miyoshi as intermediate. All others are here considered "minor".

  • Mariana Lucas (digitalized Sato 1938b and 1939d).
  • Sabrina Outeda-Jorge (photocopied Sato 1938a).
  • Ian S. Kury (provided PDF - Kayashima 1952; Saito 1933, 1936, 1938).
  • Acta arachnologica website and CiNii (provided PDFs -- Fujita 1936, 1938, 1939; Machida 1939, Takashima 1936, Uchida 1966, Uyemura 1936, 1938, 1940, Yaginuma 1940).


DISCLAIMER ? This resource was first intended as for private use of the members of the arachnology lab of Museu Nacional, but later we thought "why not to share this with the world?". Eventually if greedy lawyers (redundance...) start to bother us with copyright matters, etc, we may have to be forced to quit the project and keep this just to ourselves.
