Article keywords: Araneae, Nesticidae, taxonomy, new species, Carpathonesticus, Romania

Article: Until now the Family Nesticidae was represented in Romania by 21 species (including Nesticus cellulanus). Of these, 20 species are endemic and most of them were described as belonging to the genus Nesticus (DUMITRESCU, 1979, DUMITRESCU, 1980, WEISS, 1981).

Article keywords: Collembola, Coloburella linnaniemii, first record, Romania

Article: The collembolan fauna of Romania is rather poorly studied. In 2007, FIERA published a checklist of the springtails of Romania (388 species). Since then, 16 species were added to this list by DANYI and TRASER (2008), FIERA (2008, 2009), FIERA et al. (2013), NITZU et al. (2009) and POPA (2010, 2011, 2012). Therefore, the number of the collembolan species in Romania has been increased to 404 species
