An annotated systematic list of the potentially rare and endangered freshwater and terrestrial invertebrates in British Columbia

G. G. E. Scudder

Abstract


This paper provides an annotated systematic list of the endemic and potentially rare and endangered freshwater and terrestrial invertebrates in British Columbia. A total of 168 endemic species are listed, and 447 of the species that occur only in British Columbia in Canada are in-cluded. In addition, 203 of the more widely distributed spec ies are listed as potentially rare and endangered in the province, mostly on the basis of limited occurrence or restriction to obviously endangered habitats or ecosystems.

The list is based on published information, and information provided by systematic experts. Museum collections were not examined, so additions and correction to the list are expected. Additional study and research is suggested.
