The new subterranean subspecies of the genus Niphargus Schiödte, 1849 (Amphipoda Gammaridea, Niphargidae), N. (Orniphargus) lourensis skirosi, ssp. n. is described and figured from the underground waters of Skiros Island in the Aegean Sea (Greece), taxon rather similar to the nominal species N.(Orniphargus) lourensis Fišer et al. 2006 described and known based on one single specimen from Epirus region of Greece only. Niphargus (Orniphargus) lindbergi S. Karaman 1956, described and known based…

Two new species of groundwater amphipods of the genus Niphargus Schiödte, 1849 from northwestern Iran
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses showed that the nucleotide differences between the recently described species and their close allies are attributed to their distinctiveness and the new species are placed within the clade comprising Iranian species as a sister taxon.
A new species of Niphargus (Amphipoda, Niphargidae) from Crete (Greece)
A new species of the family Niphargidae, Niphargus zarosiensis sp. nov., is described from samples collected in 2016 from a spring draining into Lake Zaros on Crete Island, Greece. This is the first
Citizen science approach reveals groundwater fauna in Switzerland and a new species of Niphargus (Amphipoda, Niphargidae)
Knowledge on the diversity and distribution of subterranean organisms is still scattered, even in faunistically relatively well-researched countries such as Switzerland. This is mostly due to the

Phylogenetic analysis of the Niphargus orcinus species–aggregate (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Niphargidae) with description of new taxa
TLDR
This study examined cladistically the phylogeny of the Niphargus orcinus aggregate, a widely distributed assemblage of large‐bodied amphipods that comprises the most prominent European groundwater animals, and demonstrated that “Orniphargos” does not constitute a monophylum.
The giant cryptic amphipod species of the subterranean genus Niphargus (Crustacea, Amphipoda)
TLDR
It is shown that part of this diversification might have been influenced by ecological divergence along the altitudinal gradient reaching from the Adriatic coast to inland Dinaric mountain chains and Poljes, and other splits coincide with the marine regression–transgression cycles during Pliocene.
NIPHARGUS CYMBALUS, NEW SPECIES AND N. JOVANOVICI S. KAR. 1931 IN GREECE (CONTRIBUTION TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE AMPHIPODA 298)
Two members of the family Niphargidae (Amphipoda, Gammaridea) from Greece are treated in this study: From the subterranean waters in Epirus is described and figured new species Niphargus cymbalus,
Reviewintegrative future of taxonomy
TLDR
It is concluded that taxonomy needs to be pluralistic to improve species discovery and description, and to develop novel protocols to produce the much-needed inventory of life in a reasonable time.
About the scientific names of paraphyletic taxa
The 'naturality' of monophyletic taxa in comparison with that of paraphyletic ones is discussed, with examples from Clitellata. Regular scientific names for paraphyletic taxa are inevitable in a
