Suborder Cyphophthalmi

The known diversity of the minuscule soil dwellers of the suborder Cyphophthalmi is still being multiplied (although more timidly compared to the revolution in the 2000s), mostly by Giribet and collaborators in the Indo-Malayan (Clouse 2012; Clouse et al. 2011; Clouse & Giribet 2012; Clouse & Schwendinger 2012) and Neotropical ( Benavides & Giribet 2013, but the 8 new species were already counted in Kury 2011 because previously announced on website). Stylocellidae has been divided into 3 subfamilies (Clouse 2012); other systematic considerations were made for Australasian Pettalidae ( Karaman 2012). The total of 187 extant species of Cyphophthalmi ( Kury 2011) has increased to 194, or almost 4%.
