Abstract:

An analysis of the pseudoscorpion material from Croatia has supported the elevation of two taxa to full species rank: Chthonius (Chthonius) pagus n. sp. and Roncus navalia n. sp., both from Dalmatia; Croatia. Most diagnostic characters of the analyzed species are thoroughly described or figured. Some taxonomic interrelationships and features of geographic distribution have also been briefly discussed. Both studied taxa, which currently inhabit a cave on the Island of Pag in Dalmatia (Croatia), are probably endemics and relics of the Tertiary period.
