Abstract: This paper provides an update to portions of the annotated systematic list of the endemic and potentially rare and endangered terrestrial arthropods in British Columbia published by Scudder (1994). Detailed arthropod diversity inventories in forest sites in coastal British Columbia have provided significant new information on the presence and distribution of species in these habitats. Since 1991, more than 3.4 million specimens have been collected; they form 1 of the largest databases in North America to answer biodiversity-driven questions concerning arthropods, endemism, disjunct distributions, dispersal capabilities, and the impact of exotic species. We present evidence to support the assertion that these forests are global and continental foci of diversity for several taxa. The summarizing of these basic patterns of species richness and distribution for arthropods forms the framework that is at the heart of the biodiversity challenge...
