About this book

Language: French with bilingual abstract in English and French

An updated taxonomic catalogue of the terrestrial isopod crustaceans (Oniscidea) of metropolitan France (including Corsica) is provided. Based on a review of over 300 bibliographical citations, changes in taxonomy and nomenclature that have occurred since the 1960s are considered and discussed. Comments include elements of nomenclature, biogeography, ecology and some discussion about the validity of some taxa or their presence in the reference lists, especially Fauna Europaea (2013).

National geographical distribution of taxa is established from more than 170 references published since the Faune de France (Vandel 1960, 1962) and updated with some unpublished data where relevant. A total of 36 terminal taxa are added to the list established by Vandel (1960, 1962), including 24 newly described ones. Three species are recorded for the first time in mainland France: Trachelipus razzautii (Arcangeli, 1913), Nagurus cristatus (Dollfus, 1889) and Porcellio dispar Verhoeff, 1901. The French terrestrial isopod fauna currently has 299 terminal taxa (218 species) with an endemism rate of 45%.

Both names Cyphotendana Verhoeff, 1936 and Escualdoniscus Vandel, 1948 being not available (ICZN, art. 13.3), two new generic names are designated: Cyphotendana g. nov. and Escualdoniscus g. nov. The resulting taxonomic correspondence is then established as: Cyphotendana dalmazzensis Verhoeff, 1936 = Cyphotendana dalmazzensis (Verhoeff, 1936) comb. nov., Cyphotendana Iigurina Verhoeff, 1936 = Cyphotendana Iigurina (Verhoeff, 1936) comb. nov., Escualdoniscus coiffaiti Vandel, 1948 =
Escualdoniscus coiffaiti (Vandel, 1948) comb. nov. and Escualdoniscus triocellatus Vandel, 1948 = Escualdoniscus triocellatus (Vandel, 1948) comb. nov. A checklist is appended listing current valid names and synonyms used in Vandel (1960, 1962) and Fauna Europaea (2013).
