Topography

It is a little cave that winds almost rectilinear and horizontal into the mountain, but it has a particular fascination and a remarkable biospeleological interest.

Into it live a large population of Dolichopoda ligustica and Petaloptila andreinii, and moreover we can cite Trichoniscus cfr. voltai, Plectogona sanfilippoi dronerae, Sphodropsis ghilianii and some species of troglophile Araneae among which Porrhomma convexum, Meta merianae , Nesticus eremita.

In the springtime, during the thaw, in this cave flows a little rivulet in which it's possibile sometimes found little crayfishes of the genus Niphargus.
