Spiders and whipscorpions extend their limbs hydraulically using the pressure of their hemolymph. [6] Solifuges and some harvestmen extend their knees by the use of highly elastic thickenings in the joint cuticle. [6] Scorpions, pseudoscorpions and some harvestmen have evolved muscles that extend two leg joints (the femur-patella and patella-tibia joints) at once. [7] [8] The equivalent joints of the pedipalps of scorpions though, are extended by elastic recoil. [9] There are characteristics that are particularly important for the terrestrial lifestyle of arachnids, such as internal respiratory surfaces in the form of tracheae, or modification of the book gill into a book lung, an internal series of vascular lamellae used for gas exchange with the air. [10] While the tracheae are often individual systems of tubes, similar to those in insects, ricinuleids, pseudoscorpions, and some spiders possess sieve tracheae, in which several tubes arise in a bundle from a small chamber connected to the spiracle.
