Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEcology As now recognised (for Great Britain), G.carpophagus (ss) is the coastal, arboreal and synanthropic form. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat This species is either supralittoral or can be found in the intertidal zone but does not live there naturally. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The two species Geophilus carpophagus (ss) and Geophilus easoni Arthur et al, 2001 have been separated and all older records of G.carpophagus need to be considered in this context. [details]
