Twelve species of Japygids are cites from France. Six are known with certitude from caves. None of them shows any morphological modification which can be ascribed to cavernicolous life. All of them are found outside caves except Metaj. doderoi Silv. which is known from a unique female from Castel Mouly cave. To take into account the selection which seems to occur among the species, the term “subtroglophile” is proposed to include those which can be found in the caves.
