Entomology, Pseudoscorpions -- Geographical distribution
The biogeography of the 50 currently identified Oregon species is reported from analyses of data from 2220 Berlese samples collected in a stratified, extensive sampling procedure, and from collection data on several hundred specimens from major private and public collections of pseudoscorpions. Individual species accounts including maps and data relating to geographical and seasonal distribution and habitats are provided, distributional areas and habitat types are categorized, dispersal mechanisms including examples of phoresy are presented and an illustrated key to Oregon species is given.
