- ‘The cephalothorax of spiders is a sclerotized body part that does not change after the final molt.’
- ‘Although remains of the cephalothorax, abdomen, and telson are preserved, none of the specimens is articulated.’

- ‘The material referred to this taxon consists of one inflated and one crushed mold of the interior of the dorsal carapace and several fragmentary specimens of the cephalothorax.’
