The subterranean fauna of arthropods is one of the richest on the planet; however, at the same time, it is still insufficiently studied. The characteristics of the underground environment have conditioned hypogean arthropods to evolve both morphological and physiological adaptations, such as depigmentation, a complete loss of eyes, an elongation of appendages, slow metabolism, reduced energy consumption, and many others. These animals are excellent models to study the general principles of evolution and the mechanisms of adaptation to a novel environment. Given that the diversity of subterranean arthropods has not yet been sufficiently studied globally and that most previous studies have dealt with the faunal diversity, it is desirable to analyze other aspects of the diversity of this specific group of animals, including morphological, molecular, ecological, chemoecological, and behavioral diversity. Since the editors cover both troglobitic (associated with terrestrial subterranean environment) and stygobitic (associated with all types of subterranean waters) arthropods with their expertise, the Special Issue will be dedicated to the study of the diversity of both groups. We hope that it will contribute to a better knowledge of the diversity of subterranean arthropods within several biological disciplines, which would indicate their great importance within the habitats they inhabit, as well as for humans in general.
