Neue Beiträge zur Kenntnis der Vielfalt der Pseudoskorpione (Arachnida, Pseudoscorpiones) der Republik Moldau nach mehr als 30 Jahren
During a study on pseudoscorpions in 2019, a total of 74 individuals from four species and four families was collected in Moldova. The species Ephippiochthonius sarmaticus Kolesnikov, Turbanov & Gongalsky, 2019, Chelifer cancroides (Linnaeus, 1758) and Withius hispanus (L. Koch, 1873), as well as the families Cheliferidae and Withiidae, are reported for the first time in Moldova. The finding of E. sarmaticus represents the second known country for its distribution within Europe. With the present results, the number of Moldavian pseudoscorpions increased to seven species, five genera and five families.
