Coecobrya anaguilae sp. nov., a new species of springtail from Cango Caves, South Africa is described and illustrated. The new species is similar to other species of tenebricosa-group such as C. communis (Chen & Christiansen), C. edenticulata (Handschin), and C. tropicalis Qu, Chen & Greenslade in some elements of dorsal chaetotaxy, absence of eyes, unguis with one unpaired median tooth, and manubrium without smooth chaetae, but differs from them in dorsal head, mesothoracic and collophore…

Review of Eyeless Pseudosinella Schäffer (Collembola, Entomobryidae, and Lepidocyrtinae) from Brazilian Caves
The study suggests that Brazilian caves possibly shelter a great diversity of Pseudosinella taxa, several of them potentially cave dependent.
Coecobryasirindhornae sp. n., the most highly troglomorphic Collembola in Southeast Asia (Collembola, Entomobryidae)
Abstract The most highly troglomorphic Collembola of Southeast Asia, Coecobryasirindhornaesp. n., is described from a cave in Satun province, Thai Peninsula. It is characterised by its large size,
New morphological and molecular data reveal an important underestimation of species diversity and indicate evolutionary patterns in European Lepidocyrtus (Collembola : Entomobryidae)
Whether L. violaceus is a monophyletic entity in Europe is analyzed to determine if the position and number of pseudopores on the different parts of the body and appendages is a phylogenetically useful character in the identification of the species or superspecific entities.


Cave-dwelling Coecobrya from southern China with a survey of clypeal chaetae in Entomobryoidea (Collembola)
Clypeal chaetae in Entomobryoidea are systematically surveyed for the first time, and are found to be well diversified at species level and have a potential taxonomical value in discriminating taxa of morphologically conserved groups.
Two new species of Coecobrya (Collembola: Entomobryidae: Entomobryinae) from China, with a key to the Chinese species of the genus
Two new species of the genus Coecobrya are described, belonging to tenebricosa-group, that present smooth chaetae on manubrium and base of dens and differs from the latter by Abd.
A new species of Seira (Collembola: Entomobryidae: Seirini) from Northern Brazil, with the addition of new chaetotaxic characters
This is the first species of Seira described from the Cerrado domain, as well as the first record of the genus from the state of Tocantins, Brazil, and characteristics of maxillary and labial papillae, chaetotaxy of subcoxae, collophore and ventral region of head, ventral and lateral region of abdomen IV and V are provided.
New species of Sinella and Coecobrya (Collembola: Entomobryidae) from New Caledonia.
Sinella species studied here exhibit several morphological features that are not found in other non-cave species of the genus: paired teeth on inner edge of unguis closer to the base and distal unpaired tooth very tiny or absent.
Two new species of Coecobrya (Collembola, Entomobryidae) from China, with an updated key to the Chinese species of the genus
Two new Coecobrya species, which were newly collected in 2014, are described from China and are characterized by paddle-like S-chaetae of Ant.
New records and new species of springtails (Collembola: Entomobryidae, Paronellidae) from lava tubes of the Galápagos Islands (Ecuador)
The findings of the first survey of Collembola from Galápagos lava tube caves are presented, providing a significant update to the total number of entomobryoid Colleembola species reported from the GaláPagos Islands.
New species and rediagnosis of Coecobrya (Collembola: Entomobryidae), with a key to the species of the genus
Two new species are described and one known species is redescribed in this paper and complete S-chaetotaxy of the dorsal tergites is illustrated for the first time in the genus Coecobrya.
Australian species of Sinella (Coecobrya) Yosii, 1956 (Collembola: Entomobryidae)
A key is provided to the three known Australian species and a summary given of all dorsal and lateral chaetal patterns found on the fourth abdominal segment of subgenera Sinella Brook, 1882 and Coecobrya Yosii, 1956.
Collembola of Rapa Nui (Easter Island) with descriptions of five endemic cave-restricted species.
Eight species of Collembola are reported from recent collections made in caves on the Polynesian island of Rapa Nui and five of these species are new to science and apparently endemic to the island, as well as the other presumed cave-restricted arthropods.
Systematic revision of Entomobryidae (Collembola) by integrating molecular and new morphological evidence
This study greatly improves the understanding of primary and secondary characters and erects the fundamental framework for the taxonomy of Entomobryidae.
