The arachnid order Amblypygi is recorded for the first time in Italy, with the species Charinus ioanniticus (Kritscher, 1959). An isolated reproductive population was found in an underground air-raid shelter dating back to World War II below the city centre of Trieste. This represents the second record of this parthenogenetic species in continental Europe and also its westernmost known population.
