General distribution

Corsica (Geoffroy and Iorio 2009[9]); because of the synonymy of Lithobius cassinensis with Lithobius blanchardi (see Geoffroy and Iorio 2009[9]) also in Italy and possibly in the south-east of France.

Chorotype

W-Mediterranean.

Ecological notes

350–1100 m, altitudinal range probably wider; recorded from localities in all the vegetation belts of Corsica, especially the Mesomediterranean, apart from the Alpine belt. The few habitat records for this species are from forest locations (Pinus laricio, 1 site; Castanea sativa, 1 site); also in caves (5 sites; trogloxene species). See Rémy (1950)[11], Manfredi (1956)[7].

Remarks

Léger and Duboscq (1903[1]: 309) recorded from Vizzavona (as Lithobius dentatus) a female 10 mm long and with 43 antennal articles and a female (as Lithobius calcaratus C. L. Koch, 1844) 11 mm long with 49 antennal articles. Although no further comments were provided the authors considered both records uncertain marking them with a question mark. These records were later uncritically repeated by Verhoeff (1925b)[12], Attems (1949)[6] and Foddai et al. (1996)[8]. As there is no further evidence for the occurence of these two species in Corsica most modern authors (Geoffroy and Iorio 2009[9], Iorio 2010b[10]) consider their presence on the island uncertain, at least in the case of Lithobius dentatus. Both specimens studied by Léger and Duboscq (1903[1]: 309) probably belong to Lithobius blanchardi and are here, although tentatively, assigned to this species on the assumption that they are conspecific with the probably immature single unsexed specimen 6.5 mm long, with 39 antennal articles and 8 ocelli, described by Léger and Duboscq (1903[1]: 309) as Lithobius acuminatus Brölemann, 1892 and the single male 10 mm long and with 44 antennal articles described by Verhoeff (1943)[5] from the same locality, Vizzavona, as Lithobius acuminatus cassinensis Verhoeff, 1925 are here referred to Lithobius blanchardi according to Iorio (2010b)[10].
The supposed presence of Lithobius tricuspis Meinert, 1872 in the Sardinia-Corsica complex has been already discussed by Zapparoli (2009)[13]. In his view all records of this species from Sardinia must be assigned to Lithobius turritanus Fanzago, 1881, a species belonging to a group including a number of closely related species distributed in the Western Mediterranean area, such as Lithobius acuminatus, Lithobius blanchardi and Lithobius trinacrius Verhoeff, 1925, whose identities deserve further investigation. The cave records of Lithobius tricuspis recorded by Manfredi (1956)[7] from Corsica are here assigned to Lithobius blanchardi. These records are the same as those quoted as “Chilopodes” or “Lithobiides” in Rémy (1950[11]: 27, 28, 33, 34).
