In September and October 1995 a team from the CIRS, Ragusa, comprising Saro Ruggieri, Iolanda Galletti, Giancarlo Zaccaria, Giorgio Sammito, Orazio Guarrasi and Enzo Scrofani, together with Fathoel Arifin and Iwan Santosa from the Indonesian Speleological Federation carried out a speleological survey of the southern sector of the island of Sulawesi with the aim of examining the Karst potential of some carbonate outcrops present in that area. Asa result of a preliminary survey eight Karst caves were explored and studied. These caves were located in four different areas of the island and some certainly merit further investigation. A particularly promising area for further research and discovery would certainly seem to be Maros where, in the heart of the dense rain-forest an advanced Karst landscape is to be found. Here the expedition explored several deep wells and some doline from 150 to 270 metres deep. Another interesting result of the survey has been the collection of hypogean fauna; certain of these cave-dwelling animals are now beingstudied.
