La clase que presento el mayor numero de ordenes fue Insecta (Blattodea, Coleoptera, Hemiptera, Hymenoptera, Diplura y Lepidoptera), seguida de Arachnida (Acari, Schizomida, Araneae, Opiliones y Pseudoscorpiones), Diplopoda (Polyzoniida, Stemmiulida, Spirostreptida y Polydesmida), Gastropoda (Archaeogastropoda, Stylommatophora, Basommatophora y Systellommatophora); Chilopoda (Lithobiomorpha, Scolopendromorpha y Geophilomorpha) y un orden en cada una de las clases Clitellata (Haplotaxida), Entognatha (Diplura), Malacostraca (Isopoda) y Symphyla (no identificado).
En general, los ordenes mas representativos en abundancia de individuos fueron Acari con 1648 individuos, Collembola con 336, Hemiptera con 310 y Coleoptera con 180, mientras que los de menor abundancia fueron Polyzoniida y Scolopendromorpha con 5 individuos cada uno, Lepidoptera con 3 individuos, y Geophilomorpha, Orthoptera y Thysanoptera con 1 individuo cada uno.
Mesogastropoda Opiliones Geophilomorpha Polydesmida and Anoplura were the rare groups (less than 1.00%).
To support the study and better understanding of the group, this paper provides a visual guide supported with descriptions of some characters from each family to determine the four orders (Scutigeromorpha, Lithobiomorpha, Scolopendromorpha and Geophilomorpha) and 16 families that occur in the country.
Additional tests showed that the Coleoptera, Dermaptera, Dictyoptera, Geophilomorpha, Hymenoptera, Juliformia, Lepidoptera, and Polydesmida had distributions in compound space significantly different from the mass of the data.
