Abstract:   (524 Views)
Based on all collected literature dealing with the fauna of springtails in Vojvodina Province (Republic of Serbia), a list of species was created and taxonomically revised according to the latest system of Collembola taxonomy. In total, the check list of springtails of Vojvodina includes 125 species in 58 genera from 16 families and 3 orders. The most abundant order is Entomobryomorpha (55%), followed by Poduromorpha (24%) and Symphypleona (21%). According to the general distribution of the species themselves, the presented list has the following composition: 27.2% of the recorded species are European, the same number are Palearctic, 24% of the species on the list are Holarctic, 18.4% are cosmopolitan, and 3.2% are endemic to Serbia (mostly related to type localities). The species Drepanura deliblatica Loksa & Bogojević, 1970, Sinella jugoslavica Loksa & Bogojević, 1970, Deuterosminthurus quadrangulatus (Loksa & Bogojevic, 1970) and Fasciosminthurus angulipunctatus (Loksa & Bogojevic, 1970) are strictly protected species in the Republic of Serbia. This paper is a contribution to the knowledge of the Collembola fauna of Europe and represents a step towards the formation of a checklist of springtails of the Republic of Serbia.
