Abstract

Terrestrial isopods have received scant attention in Canada, especially in the Prairie Provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Prior to this study, terrestrial isopods have yet to be reported from the Prairie Provinces. In this work, Trachelipus rathkii (Brandt, 1833) is reported from Alberta for the first time. The descriptions and illustrations of the species are provided in detail.

Los isópodos terrestres han recibido poca atención en Canadá, especialmente en las provincias de las praderas de Alberta, Saskatchewan y Manitoba.

Este trabajo reporta por primera vez al isópodo terrestre Trachelipus rathkii (Brandt, 1833) en Alberta, presentando descripciones e ilustraciones detalladas de la especie.
