The distribution of Eukoenenia mirabilis (Palpigradi: Eukoeneniidae): a widespread tramp

WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 10 months ago

ABSTRACT – We report on the discovery of populations of the palpigrade Eukoenenia mirabilis (Grassi and Calandruccio, 1885) in South Africa and Western Australia, and compile known distributional records for the species. It is found to be widespread throughout the Mediterranean region, with additional populations occurring in Madagascar, South Africa, Chile and southern Australia. Accidental synanthropic introductions are the most likely cause of these additional records.
