A reassessment of the pycnogonid genus Stylopallene (Arthropoda, Callipallenidae) with description of a new genus
Memoirs of Museum Victoria Vol 72 p. 121–129 (2014)
The genus Stylopallene comprising only four species is reviewed. All species are recorded from Australia, predominantly from the southern and south-eastern coastlines in association with arborescent bryozoans. Sexual dimorphism in the scape segments is recognized in the genus for the first time. The status of Stylopallene dorsospinum is re-evaluated and assigned to the new genus Bamberene. A diagnosis of the new genus is provided along with additional images to complement existing figures.
