Mesquite 3.0 released!

David and I released Mesquite 3.0 today, which has used up a lot of our focus over the last few weeks. We’ve revamped the interface, fixed a lot of bugs, and added new features. It’s been three years since the previous release. We think biologists will be happy with the improvements.

Whew.

Paper published: Jerzego, a new genus of jumping spiders from Borneo

Our paper describing Jerzego is out!  Jerzego is a strange flat jumping spider, from the interesting subfamily Hisponinae.  Edy found both specimens of Jerzego corticicola on tree trunks in Borneo.  We named it Jerzego in honour of Jerzy Proszynski.
