and functional genetic tools. The rapid emergence and utility of Phalangium opilio as a model for evolutionary developmental biology of arthropods serve as demonstrative evidence of a new area of study in Opiliones biology, made possible through transcriptomic data. 157
Eight species of the genus have been found in the region. Two new species: P. mcheidzeae. from Georgia and . P. gorbunovi. ... Phalangium opilio . Linnaeus, 1758 is widely distributed in nearly ...
Distribution. This species occurs in Europe, North Africa, Asia and in North America.. Habitat. This very common species inhabits different biotopes, forests, heath and moorland, spruce forests, beech forests. meadows, human settlements and gardens, from the lowlands to the mountains.

The ultrastructure of the midgut epithelium of Phalangium opilio was examined. In the anterior part of the midgut the epithelium consists of three different types of cells, called resorption, digestion, and excretion cells according to their presumed functions. Excretion cells may represent old digestion cells. The relation between resorption and digestion cells needs further investigation ...
