Sinocallipus thai sp.n, is described from Saraburi Province, Thailand. This is the second species in the suborder Sinocallipodidea Shear, 2000, hitherto known only from S. simplipodicus , discovered in a cave in Yunnan, southern China. Although there are just a few differences in the structure of the gonopods, the new species can be easily distinguished from its congener by the larger number of ocelli and pleurotergites, the relative length of antennae, shape of antennomere 7, body coloration, etc. There also seems to be a habitat differentiation, S. simplipodicus is known only from a cave, while the unique specimen of Sinocallipus thai was collected under a rock and accordingly does not show any particular troglomorphic traits. The putative record of S. simplipodicus from Laos (Shear et al., 2003, Zootaxa, 365, 1–20) is discussed in the light of the new finding

Abstract Detailed information on sensory organs of Diplopoda especially on antennal sensilla are still sparse and fragmentary. The present study on the antennae of Oranmorpha guerinii (Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae) utilizing scanning electron microscopy revealed the presence of six sensillar types: (1) apical cones, (2) sensilla trichodea, (3) sensilla microtrichodea, (4) sensilla chaetica, (5) sensilla basiconica bacilliformia, and (6) sensilla basiconica spiniformia. External structure and d...

The millipede genus Sinocallipus is reviewed, with four new cave-dwelling species, Sinocallipus catba, Sinocallipus deharvengi, Sinocallipus jaegeri and Sinocallipus steineri, being described from caves in Laos and Vietnam. With the new records the number of species in the genus reaches six and the genus range is extended to Central Vietnam and North and Central Laos. Both, Sinocallipus jaegeri from Khammouan Province in Laos and Sinocallipus simplipodicus Zhang, 1993 from Yunnan, China, show hi...
