Rediscovery of the milliped genus Poratophilus Silvestri, 1897 (Spirostreptida: Harpagopho ridae).
Identities of the milliped genera Spirostreptus Brandt, 1833 and Spiropoeus Brandt, 1833.
is known from North America in Arkansas (McAllister et al., 2003), California (Reeves, 2000; Shelley, 2003b), and North Carolina (Shelley, 2000).
Poratia salvator Golovatch & Sierwald, 2000, the object of this study, is a good example of milliped
ecological and reproductive plasticity.
The taxonomically neglected milliped
order Glomeridesmida and family Glomeridesmidae (infraclass Pentazonia, superorder Limacomorpha) inhabit 21, rather than seven, regions of the world, being newly recorded from Thailand; Cambodia; the Republics of Palau, the Philippines, and Vanuatu; New Britain, Bismarck Archipelago; the Island of New Guinea (both West Papua [formerly Irian Jaya], Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea); and Sulawesi and Indonesian Borneo.
Insecta Mundi: A Journal of World Insect Systematics: The milliped order Glomeridesmida (Diplopoda: Pentazonia: Limacomorpha) in Oceania, the East Indies, and southeastern Asia; first records from Palau, the Philippines, Vanuatu, New Britain, the Island of New Guinea, Cambodia, Thailand, and Borneo and Sulawesi, Indonesia
was included as a state endemic by Robison & Allen (1995) but inadvertently overlooked and not included by Robison et al.
A bioinventory of caves of the Hoosier National Forest in south-central Indiana has resulted in the collection of 12 milliped
taxa, including a new species, Pseudotremia reynoldsae, which is described and illustrated.
2011 The Milliped
order Glomeridesmida (Diplopoda: Pentazonia: Limacomorpha) in Oceania, the East Indies, and south-eastern Asia; first records from Palau, the Philippines, Vanuatu, New Britain, the Island of New Guinea, Cambodia, Thailand, and Borneo and Sulawesi, Indonesia.
Until recently, the North American milliped
family Branneriidae included a single species, Branneria carinata, described from material collected from Beaver Creek, Jefferson Co., Tennessee (Bollman, 1888, 1893; Hoffman, 1999).
The primary North American milliped
family Parajulidae ranges from Yakutut, Alaska, and James Bay, Ontario, to western El Salvador (Shelley 2008).
family Eurymerodesmidae occurs from northeastern Nebraska, central Illinois and southeastern North Carolina to the Rio Grande and north Florida, and is the dominant representative of the order Polydesmida in the central United States (Shelley 1990).
But in fact millipedes
are divided into 75 segments, and each segment has four legs.
