Ecological notes.

200-2300 m, inferior altidudinal limit probably lower; euriecious species, recorded from localities in all vegetation belts, in Pinus laricio   woods(2 sites), in montane hygrophilous meadows (2 sites), in Castanetum   (1 site), in Quercus ilex   woods (1 site), in low maquis (1 site); also in caves (3 sites; trogloxene species). See Rémy (1950), Manfredi (1956), Iorio (2009, 2010b).

Remarks.

The cave records of Lithobius borealis   published by Manfredi (1956) from the caves of Brando, Sisco and Gudrone, are tentatively referred to this species. These records belong to the material generically quoted as “Chilopodes”, “Lithobiides” (collection date 1948) by Rémy (1950: 4, 5, 6, 11). The uncertain record of Lithobius pusillus   Latzel, 1880 published by Léger and Duboscq (1903) is also tentatively assigned to this species (see also Demange 1981).
