A new millipede species, Ommatoiulus longicornis n. sp. is described from the subterranean habitat in eastern Spain, and the elongation of its antennae is discussed in relation to the habitat where it dwells. We take the occasion to discuss the elongation of appendages as a troglobiomorphic character in millipedes and shed the light on the various, sometimes controversial, hypotheses that could have led to these modifications in millipedes and other subterranean arthropods.

Abstract In this article we review the Cymindis ehlersi complex, which is regarded to include two subspecies, C. ehlersi ehlersi Putzeys, 1872 and C. ehlersi lelievrei Jeanne, 1985 from the Cantabrian Mountains (Spain). It was found that show such remarkable differences that the latter should be raised to the specific status Cymindis lelievrei Jeanne, 1985 stat. nov. We also describe a new orophilous species of Cymindis Latreille, 1806 from the Sistema Iberico, Cymindis distercicus sp. nov., tha...

Abstract The species Paraphaenops breuilianus (Jeannel, 1916) is an Iberian iconic cave beetle with “aphaenopsian” facies, monospecific until now. An extensive field work over the last years allowed the revision of this peculiar genus using the combinations of morphological, molecular and ecological approaches and led to the description of new taxa Paraphaenops fadriquei Ortuno and Faille sp. nov., Paraphaenops breuilianus espanoli Ortuno and Faille ssp. nov. and the full larval diagnosis of the...

A new carabid beetle genus, Balligratus gen. nov., belonging to the tribe Lachnophorini, is described. It is geographically restricted to the equatorial Andes, and ecologically linked to the montane pluvial forest ecosystem, at elevations ranging from 1,200 to 3,600 m. As other carabid lineages that have radiated in such environments, Balligratus gen. nov. is a wingless clade, characterized by the loss of flight wings associated with metathoracic reduction, constriction of the elytral base, and ...

The chordeumatidan fauna of the Iberian Peninsula is far from being well known, but recent efforts are improving that knowledge. Samplings carried out in the Milieu Souterrain Superficiel (also known as the Mesovoid Shallow Substratum) on several screes of the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park (central Spain) have led to the discovery of a new species of chordeumatidan millipede. This new species belongs to the family Haplobainosomatidae, which is mainly known from the northern Iberian Peninsul...

Although Iberian subsurface terrestrial habitats have been sampled for a half century, they remain poorly known. During the last five years much more sampling of these subsurface habitats has been made, mainly in scree slopes (also called colluvial Mesovoid Shallow Substratum habitats, MSS) but also in alluvial debris of temporal watercourses (alluvial MSS). In our study, diplurans, a basal hexapod group, were extracted from two hundred traps installed in 69 locations in the mountain ranges of s...

espanolSe describe una nueva especie de Trechus Clairville, 1806 que manifiesta rasgos troglobiomorficos, como anoftalmia (tan solo se distingue una pequena cicatriz ocular sin pigmentacion), despigmentacion del tegumento y gracilidad corporal (estudiada mediante un analisis morfometrico). No obstante, la caracteristica mas destacable de esta nueva especie y que dificulta su inclusion en cualquiera de los "grupos de especies" hasta el momento establecidos es el edeago; el saco interno carece de ...

Limodromus emetikos sp. n. (Coleoptera: Carabidae) is described and illustrated from Baltic amber (Eocene). Based on its morphological features, the new species is considered a sister taxon of the extant Holarctic assimilis species group. Furthermore, the specimen described here could represent a case of stress-triggered regurgitation, which would represent the first fossil record of such a process in beetles.

Aim Current climate, biotic habitat provision and historical events are known drivers of diversity patterns. However, these three factors are seldom evaluated together. Here, we study the influence of climate, the distribution of deciduous forests and Pleistocene climate changes on the species diversity of Carabus ground beetles in Europe. Location Continental Europe. Methods We used geographically weighted regressions (GWR) to explore geographical variation in the relationship between species r...
