4. DISCUSSION In this chapter I am summarising and linking the three chapters of the results

containing two publications (chapter 3.1: Moradmand and Jäger 2012a; chapter 3.2:

Moradmand 2013) and one manuscript ―under review‖ (chapter 3.3). I am focusing here on the main results and highlighting the achievements of my study.

4.1. Taxonomic revision and systematics of Eusparassus based on morphology It is essential to any kind of biological research (i.e. performing a study in phylogeny and zoogeography of a group of organisms) to have clearly defined units (species taxon). Prior to this study, the genus Eusparassus was not revised and composed of a heterogeneous assembly of several misplaced taxa, some descriptions solely based on a single sex or juveniles and several with nomenclatural ambiguities.

Moreover many species were new to science (~27%) and had to be described.

Eusparassus demonstrates a roughly uniform morphology which hinders the recognition of its diversity (Levy 1989). I have carried out three main steps to revise

the genus:
