Soil fauna, myriapods and arachnids

Documentation of Panguana’s millipedes (Myriapoda) and arachnids has been intensifying since 2013, in collaboration between ZSM, the Museum of Natural History in Lima, and various European specialists. The study addresses the systematics, faunistics and ecology of the entire ground litter fauna. For the first time in Amazonian Peru, the terrestrial mites are being examined comprehensively as well.
