Cave description:

The cave develops inside the Upper Devonian bituminous limestone (Zorzin & Melotti, 1995). The entrance, hidden by thick vegetation, connects to the upper section of a small room which can be descended along a narrow ridge, and it is followed by a gallery which becomes wider, and after 120 m it turns into a large chamber, connected to a lower second chamber by a 25 m long shaft. The exploration ended at this second chamber even though a large siphon continues to the East side of it. Several drip holes are scattered in the entire cave, some with pisoliths which are still under study. Stygophile fauna was collected as well. (R. Zorzin)

Results of the 13 expeditions organized by the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale of Verona to southern China. One-hundred-twenty-five caves were explored, for a total of more than 60 km in length. For each cave we list the progressive number, the cadastral number, the type of research conducted and a short description of the cave. Most of the caves are located in Guizhou Province, in Qianxi County. The hydrogeology, biology, geography and archaeology of the area were investigated during the scientific expeditions. 40 pages, No caves maps, 21 photos.

The Verona Museum research in China caves led to a record in the field of an higth number of taxa. Some of them have not yet been identified at the species level, some were already studied, and some are still in study. In this paper, after a brief history of biospeleological research in China, the list of fauna collected in each cave is provided. An ecological and biogeografical analysis on cave fauna of the investigated Provinces is provided. 24 pages, 14 photos, 1 map.
