Troglofauna are air-breathing terrestrial animals that live underground in caves and smaller air-filled voids (meso-caverns) beneath the ground.

Typical troglofauna include species of spiders and other arachnids, millipedes, beetles, crickets, cockroaches, and bats.

Troglofauna often need to be considered as a factor in environmental assessment and approval for development projects.
