Silvestri, 1932, has been recorded from a Portuguese cave environment (Conde 1955); this species previously had been known as an epigean species from Sierra de Aralar in Navarra, Spain (Silvestri 1932). Intensive sampling efforts over the last four years in Portuguese karstic caves revealed the presence of a morphospecies originally assigned to

We present a checklist of subterranean millipedes from the Iberian Peninsula. Among the 16 orders of millipedes present worldwide, nine are represented in the Iberian Peninsula, of which five have troglobiont species: Polyxenida, Glomerida, Polydesmida, Chordeumatida and Julida. Currently, 75 species of troglobiont millipedes are known from the Iberian Peninsula, although only 68 have been described so far. Most of this diversity occurs in Spain, while only seven species are known from Portugal,...

2 Abstract: Millipedes play an important role in the decomposition of organic matter in the subterranean environment. Despite the existence of several cave-adapted species of millipedes in adjacent geographic areas, their study has been largely ignored in Portugal. Over the last decade, intense fieldwork in caves of the mainland and the island of Madeira has provided new data about the distribution and diversity of millipedes. A review of millipedes from caves of Portugal is presented, listing f...

Two new species of the genus Cylindroiulus Verhoeff, 1894, C. julesvernei and C. oromii, are described from the subterranean ecosystem of Madeira Island, Portugal. Species are illustrated with photographs and diagrammatic drawings. The new species belong to the Cylindroiulus madeirae-group, an insular species swarm distributed in the archipelagos of Madeira and the Canary Islands. We discuss the differences between the new species and their relatives and present information on the subterranean e...

A new genus Sireuma is described to accommodate a new species, S. nobile , from a cave in Portugal. The unique features of the male gonopods and the absence of a postvulvar organ support the creation of a new genus. The new species is illustrated with scanning electron micrographs and diagrammatic drawings. Differences vis-a-vis its relatives are discussed, and information on the environment in which the new species was found is also provided.

A new cave-dwelling species of the genus Scutogona Ribuat, 1913, S. minor n. sp., is described from caves of Sico karst in central Portugal. The classification and delimitation of Scutogona vis-a-vis related genera, in particular Meinerteuma Mauries, 1982, is discussed.

Two new blind, cave-dwelling species of the genus Acipes Attems, 1937, are described from the Algarve, southern Por-tugal: A. machadoi n. sp. and A. bifilum n. sp. Acipes andalusius Enghoff & Mauries, 1999, is reported from the mesovoid shallow substratum in Alicante (Spain), 250 km from the type locality in Andalusia.

The genus Boreviulisoma Brolemann, 1928, is revised. The synonymy of Liliputia Attems, 1952, under Boreviulisoma is confirmed, but L. badia Attems, 1951, from Spain, is resurrected, as Boreviulisoma badium , from synonymy under B. li-ouvillei Brolemann, 1928 (the type species of Boreviulisoma ) from Morocco. Boreviulisoma barrocalense n. sp. is de-scribed from the subterranean environment of the Algarve, the southernmost province of Portugal. The distribution of the three known species of Borevi...
