          In the Dinaric Karst, Alpioniscus (Illyrionethes) is the taxon with the largest number of troglobiotic species (19), one of which is new and described here: A. busljetai sp. nov., found in two caves in the coastal area of North Dalmatia. Both caves are threatened by human activities (IUCN threats 1.1, 9.1.1).

              The genus Alpioniscus Racovitza, 1908 in Sardinia: taxonomy and natural history ( Isopoda , Oniscidea , Trichoniscidae )

              Abstract The genus Alpioniscus Racovitza, 1908 ( Trichoniscidae ) from Sardinia is revised. Three new cave-dwelling species are described: A. onnisi Taiti & Argano, sp. n., A. stochi Taiti & Argano, sp. n., and A. sideralis Taiti & Argano, sp. n.. The genus Utopioniscus Schmalfuss, 2005 is considered to be a junior synonym of Alpioniscus , after morphological and molecular analyses. Alpioniscus fragilis (Budde-Lund, 1909) and A. kuehni from Grotta del Bue Marino are illustrated. With the new species, the genus Alpioniscus in Sardinia comprises six species: two troglobionts ( A. fragilis and A. onnisi ), one endogean and troglobiont ( A. thanit Taiti & Argano, 2009), and three stygobionts ( A. kuehni , A. stochi , and A. sideralis ). All the species occur in karstic areas in the central-eastern and south-eastern part of the island. A key to all the Sardinian species of Alpioniscus is provided.
