Checklist & Distribution

The following list contains all hitherto known amphipods from Switzerland. Some species could not be confirmed yet (grey font type), but are to be expected in the near future due to their findings in close vicinity to Switzerland or ongoing invasion processes. Species marked with * are non-native species which arrived after 1900. Species marked with † are extinct in Switzerland. The checklist is curated by Roman Alther and based on Altermatt et al. 2014, Fišer et al. 2017, Fišer et al. 2018, Altermatt et al. 2019, Alther et al. 2021.
