Millipedes have been inhabiting the earth for more than 400 my and show a great diversity regarding their morphology and ecology. For a better understanding of the timing and pattern of millipede evolution, Burmese amber offers a unique window into the Cretaceous period, ca. 99 Ma. Here, we describe the first known fossil of the colobognathan order Platydesmida, the species Andrognathus burmiticus n. sp. based on 15 specimens from Cretaceous Burmese amber. We combine classical light-microscopy a...

Before this study, giant pill-millipedes (order Sphaerotheriida) were unknown from Laos despite their presence in all surrounding countries. As by-catch from collections by arachnologists, 31 specimens of Sphaerotheriida from Laos became available for study. The sample included 14 species. Three species were only represented by females, which are described but cannot be named. Of the remaining 11 species, a single species belongs to the genus Zephronia Gray, 1832: Z. laotica n. sp.; and the othe...

Four new species of giant pill-millipedes (Sphaerotheriida) are described from southern Vietnam: Sphaerobelum cattiense sp. nov., Sphaerobelum konkakinhense sp. nov., Zephronia konkakinhensis sp. nov. and Zephronia montis sp. nov. An updated generic diagnosis of Sphaerobelum Verhoeff, 1924 and a key to its species are provided.

Polydesmus ( Pterodesmus ) voeltzkowi nom. nov. is proposed as a replacement name for Polydesmus ( Pterodesmus ) sakalava de Saussure & Zehntner, 1901, now Dalodesmus sakalava (de Saussure & Zehntner, 1901), a junior primary homonym of Polydesmus sakalava de Saussure & Zehntner, 1897.

Symphyla are one of the least known of the four classes of the Myriapoda. While Symphyla are dated to have split from the other myriapods at about 430–593 Ma, there are no fossil specimens known aside from seven specimens of the family Scutigerellidae preserved in Dominican and Baltic amber, with a maximum age of ca. 54 Ma. Here we describe the first fossil representative of the second Symphyla family, the Scolopendrellidae, Symphylella patrickmuelleri sp. nov., from Burmese amber (ca. 99 Ma). U...
