Pseudoscorpions (Arachnida: Pseudoscorpiones) of the southwestern part of Cesky Kras Protected landscape, Czech Republic

Abstract :

Faunistic data on pseudoscorpions from the Protected Landscape Area of the southwestern part of Cesky Kras are presented. The selected fragmented landscape includes seventeen forest fragments of different size and different plant associations and three open non-forest localities. A faunistic survey was conducted during the years 2008 – 2011. Soil sampling and pitfall trapping were used as the sampling methods. Out of 3859 collected pseudoscorpions, 11 species belonging to 3 families including Chthoniidae, Neobisiidae and Chernetidae were identified. New localities and all nymphal stages of the rare species Allochernes peregrinus Lohmander, 1939 and Microbisium suecicum Lohmander, 1945 were found during this research.
