Abstract

All previously known localities of Pyrgophorus parvulus (Guilding, 1828) on the Caribbean island of Montserrat were destroyed by volcanic eruptions starting in 1995. Here we document a population in a freshwater stream only indirectly affected by that eruption. Specimens collected on Montserrat are morphologically consistent with P. parvulus and 16S DNA sequences indicate genetic consistency.
