Material examined.

Epigeic. Haute-Corse, 2B - Olmi-Cappella, near the cemetery: 20.XI.2010, JR-JML, 2 ♂♂ EI det. (CEI) [II].

General distribution.

Corsica ( Geoffroy and Iorio 2009).

Chorotype.

Corsican endemic, W-Mediterranean affinities (?).

Ecological notes.

1050-1070 m; recorded only from localities of the Mesomediterranean and Supramediterranean belts. Epigeic, one record from a forest habitat (1 site); also in caves (3 sites; trogloxene species). See Verhoeff (1943), Rémy (1950), Iorio (2010b).

Remarks.

Manfredi (1956) doubtfully assigned to this species a female from the cave of Cherpinede (Lano). To this material in part refers the generic quotation of “Chilopodes” published in Rémy (1950: 27) from the same locality (collection date 1948).

The identity of Lithobius aidonensis valdoniellensis  with Lithobius aidonensis  , first suggested by Minelli (2006) was formalized by Iorio (2010b).
