Cavernicolous Oniscidea of Romania

Cuvinte cheie: Oniscidea, Romanian caves

Articol: 35 species of cavernicolous Oniscidea inhabit the caves of Romania. A remarkable aspect of the oniscidean fauna is the high number of endemic species. The endemic species of Oniscidea from Romania form two groups: Carpathian endemites and Dobrogean endemites.

Carpathonesticus orolesi n. sp. from the Carpathians (Araneae, Nesticidae)

Cuvinte cheie: Araneae, Nesticidae, taxonomy, new species, Carpathonesticus, Romania

Articol: 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). Only 3 species were included in the genus Carpathonesticus (WEISS and HEIMER, 1982, WEISS, 1983)

First record of Coloburella linnaniemii (Denis, 1926) (Hexapoda: Collembola) in Romania

Cuvinte cheie: Collembola, Coloburella linnaniemii, first record, Romania

Articol: 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

Tectono-karst depressions in the central-western part of the Mehedinţi Mountains (SW Romania)

Cuvinte cheie: Tectono-karst depressions, mega-sinkholes, groundwater drainage paths

Articol: The horst structure of the Mehedinţi Mountains, bounded to the east by the Mehedinţi Plateau, and to the west by the Cerna Graben, has been leveled by the Râul Şes II karst planation surface, at an altitude of 1250-1030 m. Part of the Mesozoic sedimentary cover, limestones developed in Urgonian facies widely outcrop, overlying the crystalline-granite bedrock
