Abstract:

As the result of a provisional study in 2001-2002 of the centipede fauna and community structure of a Carpathian Dentario glandulosae-Fagetum beech forest in the Magura National Park, Poland, 24 species or subspecies of Chilopoda have been revealed. This amounts to 41% of all centipede species currently reported from Poland. The most abundant and frequently encountered species are Lithobius burzenlandicus VERHOEFF (eudominant, euconstant), L. mutabilisL.KOCH and Strigamia acuminata (LEACH) (both eudominants, acces-sorial species). The community is characterised by a large proportion of woodland species (15) while the remaining forms are eurytopic. Among the most interesting records in the study area are the following mountain species rarely found in Poland: Dicellophilus carniolensis (C.L.KOCH), Strigamia transsilvanica (VERHOEFF), Cryptops parisi BROLEMANN, Lithobius lucifugus L.KOCH, L. silvivagus VERHOEFF, L. matici PRUNESCO and Harpolithobius anodus (LATZEL). The centipede population densities average 121 indiv./m2, ranging between 46 and 217 indiv./m2. Compared to other beech woodlands in Poland, the study forest is characterised by an exceptionally rich local faunaas well as the high centipede population densities. The community structure is very similar to that of the Carpathian beech forests in the Pieniny Mountains. The Chilopoda community features testify to the exceptional natural value of this area, which so far has never been studied in due detail.
