Casual observation and collection of invertebrates in caves on Vancouver Island, B.C. have been conducted since the early 1960s. Two comprehensive and systematic surveys have been carried out: one in the 7 caves of Horne Lake Caves Park in 1986; and a second in 1997, which covered 15 caves of a wider geographic area on the island. A total of 192 taxa have been identified to date, including a number of new species, records, or rare species.
