This work deals with an overview of the faunal composition and presents a general ecological approach to the groundwater oligochaetes in southern Europe. The species richness is high and similar to that of the superficial waters in the same area. Among the 150 species that we found, about 29 are stygobiont, so the total number of stygobiont species in the area studied has been increased to 58. Ten of these species are tubificids with marine phyletic affinities. A list of the most frequently… CONTINUE READING
