New species of Deuteraphorura (Collembola: Onychiuridae) from Romania.

The genus Deuteraphorura Absolon, 1901 is the second largest after Protaphorura within the family Onychiuridae (Bellinger et al. 1996-2013) and includes 78 species in the world (Jordana et al. 2012; Dallai & Fanciulli 2009). The genus is characterized by the shape of the postantennal organ with numerous (11-20), compound vesicles, antennal III sense organ with 5 papillae and 2 ribbed sensory clubs, the presence of the chaeta d0 on head and chaeta p0 on abdominal tergum IV, abdominal tergum VI with 1 medial chaeta, tibiotarsal distal whorl with 9 chaetae, furcal area with 2+2 chaeta in 1 row (Weiner 1996; Pomorski 1998) and usually 2 manubrial rows mm and mp, chaetae from the ma row displaced on the level of dental microchaetae, male ventral organ usually present and anal spines absent. Recently Jordana et al. (2012) provided a key to all species of Deuteraphorura of the world, but without D. banii Dallai & Fanciulli 2009, which belongs to the unformed group of species without pseudocelli on thoracic tergum I. A key to the species without pseudocelli on thoracic tergum I is proposed herein based mainly on the key and Table 7 elaborated by Jordana et al. (2012). Some of misunderstandings in the key and in the table were replaced according to the new redescription (Fanciulli et al. 2010) and a proper interpretation (Gruia 1965; Simon & Lucianez 1994).

The Romanian fauna of Deuteraphorura consists of 11 species (Fiera 2007), which were mainly found in caves and described by Gruia (1965, 1971, 1972) and Gruia & Popa (2005). Six of them seem to be endemic for Romanian springtail fauna. In the present paper we describe 2 new species of Deuteraphorura from forest soils of Romania. This work is the second contribution on the discovery of new species of Collembola from Doftana Valley (Fiera et al. 2013).

MATERIALS AND METHODS

The specimens were cleared in lactic acid and KOH, and subsequently mounted on slides using Marc Andre II's or Swan's medium. Drawings and measurements were done using a phase contrast microscope LEICA DM2500 equipped with camera lucida. In the description of the new species we used the nomenclature of morphological features as proposed by Weiner (1996), Pomorski (1998), Fjellberg (1999) and Jordana et al. (2012).

Etymology

The new species is named after Doftana River, Romania.

Distribution

Known only from type locality. Deuteraphorura doftana sp. nov. was collected together with D. dianae sp. nov. from 1 of the 2 studied forests, located in Doftana Valley, Romania.

Remarks

Four Deuteraphorura species characterized by the absence of pso on Th. I and the presence of 3+3 pso on posterior part of a head and on Th. terga II-III were previously known: D. pseudofimetaria Folsom 1917, D. rendsinae (Haybach 1962), D. pseudobosnaria (Dallai 1970), D. apuanica Dallai 1970. Among these species only D. rendsinae has the same dorsal pseudocellar formula (33/033/33354) but differs in ventral pso formula (2/000/1112 in D. rendsinae and 3/011/3212 in the new species). D. pseudobosnaria and D. apuanica have only 3+3 dorsal pso on Abd. tergum V (4+4 in the new species) and other ventral pseudocellar formula (3/011/3212 in D. pseudobosnaria, 2/011/1212 in D. apuanica). The last two species also possess more vesicles in PAO: 16 in D. pseudobosnaria and D. apuanica, whereas D. rendsinae and the new species have lower numbers of vesicles (8-10 and 11 respectively). D. pseudofimetaria with 16 vesicles in PAO has different dorsal abdominal and whole ventral pseudocellar formula than all other species (4435-63-4 and 2/011/1111).
