A synopsis of the invertebrate cave fauna of Jamaica
NSS Bulletin , Volume 54 - Issue 2 p. 37- 60
Fifty-two Jamaican caves were investigated for invertebrate faunas, with the discovery of about 250 invertebrate species judged to be non-accidental residents of subterranean spaces or caves. Thirty-six species are troglobites (specialized for subterranean or cave life). The vertebrate fauna may include an eyeless fish. After Cuba, this is the richest known diversity of cave faunas on any island in the West Indies. -from Author
