Title: Amphisexual care in Acutisoma proximum (Arachnida, Opiliones), a neotropical harvestman with exclusive maternal care
Author: Buzatto, BA
Machado, G
Abstract: We provide observational and experimental evidence that territorial males of the maternal harvestman Acutisoma proximum temporarily care for clutches that are left unattended by females from their harems. The evolution of paternal care in harvestmen from a territory-based polygynous mating system is discussed.
