Two species of Roncus L. Koch, 1873 (Neobisiidae), new to science (R. ciobanmos n. sp. and R. dragobete n. sp.), and one species of Neobisium Chamberlin, 1930 [N. (N). biharicum Beier, 1939], collected in the Movile Cave, southern Dobrogea, Romania, have been described, diagnostic characters illustrated, and their geographic distribution analyzed. In addition, the description of Chthonius (Chthonius) monicae Boghean, 1989 (Chthoniidae), otherwise known only from two females, has been amended…

TLDR
It was concluded that specimens of R. lubricus from the United States belong to the nominal subspecies, and it is assumed that the USA populations of this subspecies were probabl y introduced by human activity.
ARE PARALLEL MORPHOLOGIES OF CAVE ORGANISMS THE RESULT OF SIMILAR SELECTION PRESSURES?
TLDR
This study used variation in mating success and fecundity to test for the presence of directional selection on eye, antennal, and body size characters in a set of cave and spring populations during a series of seasonal cross‐sectional samplings and found significant directional selection for smaller eyes in caves and larger eyes in springs, which supports the hypothesis that selection is responsible for reduced eye size in cave populations.
