Trogulus falcipenis, spec nov, a new trogulid from the Alps and the Dinaric Alps Arachnida, Opiliones, Trogulidae Trogulus falcipenis, spec nov, ein neuer Brettkanker aus den Alpen und dem Dinarischen Gebirge Arachnida, Opiliones, Trogulidae
Trogulus falcipenis, spec. nov., the smallest hitherto known species of the genus, is described. This trogulid is characterized by its small body size (male < 4.7/female < 5.3 mm), large interocular distance, dark-brown chelicerae and in males, by the short penis (< 1.25 mm), the rod-shaped truncus and the sickle-shaped stylus. Further morphological differences compared to Trogulus tricarinatus (Linnaeus, 1767) and data on the variability of both species are given. Trogulus tricarintus hirtus Dahl, 1903 is closely related to T. falcipenis, spec. nov., but is distinguishable by long, vertical-standing hairs an the legs. T. falcipenis, spec. nov. is known from Austria (Carinthia), Slovenia, Croatia, Yugoslavia (Montenegro, Serbia) and Albania. Particularly in the northern part of its distribution the species inhabits the litter mainly of beech- and mixed forests and seems to occur mainly in the higher montane-zone. The associated harvestmen-fauna is listed and the endangered status of the species is discussed.
