Central Texas Karst Invertebrates Taxonomy

The purpose of this document is to provide up-to date taxonomic information for the sixteen endangered karst invertebrates that occupy caves and karst areas in Bexar, Travis, and Williamson counties, Texas. It covers six insects (three ground beetles and three mold beetles) and ten arachnids (three harvestmen, six spiders, and one pseudoscorpion). Methods to collect specimens for taxonomic identification are also provided as well as a list of taxonomists that are qualified to provide identifications. This document will be updated periodically as we receive more information.
