Archduke Ludwig Salvator and Leptodirus Hohenwarti from Postojnska jama
Brigitta Mader - (32/2,2003)
The author presents a historic preparation of a Leptodirus hohenwarti Schmidt recently found in the house of Eugenio Sforza (1820-1894) in Toscana.Because of the fact that Sforza has been the tutor and equerry of the Austrian Archduke and natural scientist Ludwig Salvator (1847-1915) a connection is presumed between Ludwig Salvator's natural history collections and the Leptodirus-specimen, which was in the author's opinion acquired in Postojna in 1863 on the occasion of Ludwig Salvator's first visit to the caves, accompagnied by Eugenio Sforza.
