Abstract. Collembola is one of the major functional groups in soil as well as a model taxon in numerous disciplines. Therefore the accurate identification of specimens is critical, but could be jeopardised by cases of cryptic diversity. Several populations of six well characterised species of springtails were sequenced using the COI barcode fragment as a contribution to the global Collembola barcoding campaign. Each species showed high intraspecific divergence, comparable to interspecific… Expand
Cryptic Diversity in the Ubiquist Species Parisotoma notabilis (Collembola, Isotomidae): A Long-Used Chimeric Species?
TLDR
The sequencing of the barcoding fragment for several populations throughout Europe and North America revealed four distinct genetic lineages, and the species name was successfully assigned to one of these lineages. Expand
Species delimitation in the morphologically conserved Coecobrya (Collembola: Entomobryidae): A case study integrating morphology and molecular traits to advance current taxonomy
TLDR
This study aimed to integrate both morphological and molecular character traits to explore the collembolan Coecobrya group across geographically separated cave populations, and described seven new species corresponding to seven candidate morphospecies. Expand
Integrating morphology and DNA barcodes for species delimitation within the species complex Xenylla maritima ( Collembola : Hypogastruridae )
The species complex Xenylla maritima is examined using morphological and molecular characters. These independent datasets allowed for the identification of species which previously were overlookedExpand
Delimiting species of Protaphorura (Collembola: Onychiuridae): integrative evidence based on morphology, DNA sequences and geography
TLDR
The potential benefits of integrative taxonomy, particularly simultaneous use of molecular/geographical tools, are highlighted as a powerful way of ascertaining the true diversity of the Onychiuridae. Expand
Barcoding the Collembola of Churchill: a molecular taxonomic reassessment of species diversity in a sub‐Arctic area
TLDR
The systematic barcoding campaign at Churchill revealed a diverse collembolan fauna consisting of 97 species‐level MOTUs in six types of habitats, far higher than prior records for Arctic Canada and could lead to reconsider the actual diversity of the group in Arctic environments. Expand
Cryptic species in Lepidocyrtus lanuginosus (Collembola: Entomobryidae) are sorted by habitat type
TLDR
The results indicate that genetic markers allow delineating cryptic species in Collembola, which are widespread, morphologically coherent and differ in the habitats they colonize. Expand
First record of a possible predatory collembolan species, Dicyrtoma fusca (Collembola: Dicyrtomidae), in New Zealand
TLDR
DNA sequence data of the New Zealand specimens clustered with sequence data from GenBank of this species from Norway and England, confirming that D. fusca populations in New Zealand originated from Europe. Expand
Revealing species diversity of Tomocerus ocreatus complex ( Collembola : Tomoceridae ) : integrative species delimitation and evaluation of taxonomic characters
Tomocerus ocreatus species complex is among the commonest groups of Tomoceridae in East Asia and mainly distributed in the southern areas of China. Previous multi-locus molecular analyses have provedExpand
A new species of Ceratophysella (Collembola: Hypogastruridae) from Japan, with notes on its DNA barcode and a key to Japanese species in the genus.
TLDR
The morphological and molecular characteristics of the new species, collected from ascomata of Ciborinia canielliae in Japan, are described and an identification key of Japanese Ceratophysella is provided. Expand
Molecular Comparison among Three Antarctic Endemic Springtail Species and Description of the Mitochondrial Genome of Friesea gretae (Hexapoda, Collembola)
TLDR
The relationships among these three species are further explored through the sequencing of the complete mtDNA for F. gretae and the use of complete mitogenomic as well as cytochrome c oxidase I data, which provide further support that distinct species were originally hidden within the same taxon.

TLDR
It is concluded that DNA barcoding is a powerful tool for identifying species of Collembola and should regularly be useful as a complement to traditional, morphological taxonomy. Expand
Cryptic Diversity in the Ubiquist Species Parisotoma notabilis (Collembola, Isotomidae): A Long-Used Chimeric Species?

Description and DNA barcoding assessment of the new species Deutonura gibbosa (Collembola: Neanuridae: Neanurinae), a common springtail of Alps and Jura
TLDR
This is the most convincing example so far that barcode may help to discriminate taxa among closely related species in Collembola. Expand
DNA Barcoding Reveals Cryptic Diversity in Lumbricus terrestris L., 1758 (Clitellata): Resurrection of L. herculeus (Savigny, 1826)
TLDR
Large numbers of DNA barcode sequences of the cytochrome oxidase I obtained for nominal L. terrestris and six congeneric species reveal that there are two distinct lineages within nominal L, herculeus, and the two are morphologically indistinguishable, except by overlapping size-related characters. Expand
DNA barcodes distinguish species of tropical Lepidoptera.
TLDR
It is shown that cytochrome c oxidase I DNA barcodes effectively discriminate among species in three Lepidoptera families from Area de Conservación Guanacaste in northwestern Costa Rica, suggesting DNA barcoding will significantly aid species identification and discovery in tropical settings.

Revision of the Australian Oenochroma vinaria Guenee, 1858 species-complex (Lepidoptera: Geometridae, Oenochrominae): DNA barcoding reveals cryptic diversity and assesses status of type specimen without dissection
TLDR
A lectotype is designated for Monoctenia decora, a confirmed synonym of O. vinaria, and a new species, Oenochroma barcodificata sp. Expand
Two major evolutionary lineages revealed by molecular phylogeny in the parthenogenetic collembola species Folsomia candida
TLDR
The hypothesis of an early divergence of two distinct lineages among strains of the parthenogenetic “standard” springtail Folsomia candida is supported and these lineages differ in their rate of evolution and mode of diversification. Expand
Revision of the genus Neelus Folsom, 1896 (Collembola, Neelida) with the description of two new troglobiotic species from Europe
TLDR
Two new species of the genus Neelus Folsom are described: N. koseli sp. Expand
The use of genetic markers for the diagnosis of sibling species in the genus Isotomurus (Insecta, Collembola)
TLDR
The absence of hybrids demonstrates that the two species, discriminated morphologically by body pigmentation, do not cross and the rate of sequence divergence of the mitochondrial COII gene confirms a significant degree of differentiation. Expand

TLDR
It is established that invasive species surveys employing DNA barcoding gain additional resolution over those based on morphology as they allow evaluation of cryptic lineages exhibiting different invasion histories. Expand
