A new highly troglomorphic species of Eukoenenia Palpigradi Eukoeneniidae from tropical Brazil

, : A new highly troglomorphic species of Eukoenenia Palpigradi Eukoeneniidae from tropical Brazil. Journal of Arachnology 40(2): 151-158

A third troglobitic species of Brazil is described from three specimens collected within Gruta da Morena, located in the municipal district of Cordisburgo, Minas Gerais. Eukoenenia sagarana new species (Palpigradi: Eukoeneniidae) is highly adapted to subterranean environments, corresponding to the most troglomorphic Palpigradi species described to date. This new species is very close to E. maquinensis Souza & Ferreira 2010, a troglobitic species recently described from Gruta de Maquin , located in the same municipal district. The differences and similarities between these two species and between E. sagarana and other species of Eukoenenia are presented.
