Monotarsobius remyi Verhoeff 1943: 14, fig. 18. (1)

Literature records.

Epigeic. Haute-Corse, 2B - Erbalunga (1, loc. typ. of Monotarsobius remyi Verhoeff, 1943) [I].

General distribution.



Corsican endemic, uncertain affinities.

Ecological notes.

Elevation range unknown; epigeic species. No records on habitat preferences, the type locality falls however within the Mesomediterranean belt.


The identity of this species has not been reviewed since its description. The species is known only from its type material and inexplicably it has been overlooked in the contemporary check-list of the centipedes of Corsica ( Foddai et al. 1996) and France ( Geoffroy and Iorio 2009, Iorio 2010b). Its status remain uncertain because the only known specimen, upon which the original species description is based, is an immature male.
