Chaetophiloscia sicula Verhoeff, 1908
GB IUCN status: Not applicable (non-native)
Chaetophiloscia sicula is only known from the Eden Project (Mediterranean Biome), Cornwall, where it was first collected in 2005, but its identity was not confirmed until a male specimen was collected in 2010.
In 2010 specimens were found underneath embedded rocks which were damp underneath.
It originates from the Mediterranean regions of southern France and Italy, but has been widely introduced elsewhere.
