AbstractThe springtails of the Netherlands: genus Ptenothrix, new to the Dutch fauna (Hexapoda:
Entognatha: Collembola)
This paper is the second in a series on the identification, distribution and ecology of springtails
of the Netherlands. The genus Ptenothrix Börner, 1906 is described, with one new species
present in the Netherlands, i.e. P. atra (Linnaeus, 1758). A second and third species, i.e. P. ciliata
Stach, 1957 and P. setosa (Krausbauer, 1898) may be expected for the Dutch fauna, but have
not been recorded yet. With a key, illustrated with drawings and photographs, specimens of
Ptenothrix can be identified. For P. atra a distribution map, with a resolution of 5km squares
is added. For each species an ecological profile is made. Ptenothrix atra is a stenotopic species,
that can be found on river flood plains along the flood mark. Here it is found under basalt
stones or concrete and under bark of fallen trees. It prefers wet to moist grasslands.
