Campodea (Campodea) alluvialis Sendra
- Diplurans of subsurface terrestrial habitats in the Iberian Peninsula, with a new species description (Diplura: Campodeidae)
- Campodea alluvialis
Etymology. The specific name for this new species, alluvialis, is derived from its alluvial-dwelling habitat in dry spots of rivers (Fig. 4). Habitat and distribution. Campodea alluvialis n. sp. occurs in non-flooded spots of channel rivers and is almost exclusively located in alluvial debris, alluvial MSS (Fig. 4). Its known distribution is in several alluvial nonflooded spots around watersheds in eastern of Prebaetic Mountains such as: the Guadalest-Bolulla, the Xaló, the Girona, the Serpis, and the Xúquer watersheds (Fig. 1).
