Titanobochica, surprising discovery of a new cave-dwelling genus from southern Portugal (Arachnida: Pseudoscorpiones: Bochicidae)

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

The new genus Titanobochica is described for Titanobochica magna sp. nov. from caves of the Algarve karstic massif, in Portugal. The new genus is assigned to the family Bochicidae and its particular characteristics and geographical isolation suggest a relictual condition. A key to the genera of Bochicidae is provided. The composition of the cave-dwelling fauna of the Algarve province is also discussed.
