Lecture “Troglophilic cave crickets in Croatia: problems of taxonomy, distribution and ecology”

Lecturer: Nikola Tvrtković, PhD
In addition to an overview of troglophilic crickets of the Rhaphidophoridae family (crickets of the genus Dolichopoda and four species of cave horses of the genus Troglophilus), you will find out about their phylogeny and phylogeography, ecology, and degree of attachment to caves, phenology, history of research in today’s Croatia, known distribution, taxonomic problems and current phase of taxonomic revision.
Those who want to help solve the unknown faster will receive instructions on where, how and what to collect during visiting caves and pits.
