The fifth species of the millipede order Siphonocryptida, Hirudicryptus quintumelementum sp. nov., is described from Nepal. With this, the surprisingly disjunct distribution of the order with its four former species from Sumatra, the Macaronesian Islands, Malaya and Taiwan, has become connected through the relatively young mountain chains of the Himalayas. The new species shows the typical morphology of the order, with very little variation in external characters (in lack of male specimens). Thi...

The modern era in diplopod taxonomy began in 1971 with publication of the Nomenclator Generum et Familiarum Diplopodorum . Along with the internet and electronic communications, this pioneering work catalyzed an increased output of synthetic publications beyond mere species descriptions, thereby leading to accelerating advancements. Significant taxonomic and/or cataloging studies have since occurred in 14 of the 16 established orders, all except Stemmiulida and Siphoniulida. Important faunistic ...

A shocking pink, very spiny new species of “dragon millipede”, Desmoxytes purpurosea sp.n., is described from Thailand, Uthaithani province. Its behaviour suggests that its colouration is aposematic, like that of some bright red congeners. Relations of the new species to congeners are discussed.

Glyphiulus Gervais, 1847, genre de Cambalopsidae sud-est asiatique et a tres large repartition, est revise. Une attention particuliere est portee au groupe granulatus, etabli pour les especes dont les caracteristiques principales sont, d'une part, le sternum 1 du mâle depourvu de structures medianes mais presentant deux prolongements largement separes, a la base desquels se trouvent des pattes vestigiales comportant le plus souvent un, parfois deux, articles ; et, d'autre part, la structure et l...

Rhinocricus Karsch, 1881 has 207 species occurring mainly in the Americas, and more than 60 of them were described from Brazil. The genus was proposed based on the presence of dorsal scobinae on the prozonites. The present study evaluates the monophyly of three species groups previously proposed in Rhinocricus. We evaluated 39 morphological characters and included 30 species as terminal taxa, 9 of which are outgroups. We performed a parsimony analysis under implied weighting in TNT 1.5, obtainin...

Abstract The edaphic fauna plays an important role in the organic matter dynamics of the soil. Millipeds (Diplopoda), centipeds (Chilopoda) and isopods (Isopoda) are among the main components of the soil fauna. Vegetation structure represents one of the main factors influencing composition and diversity of these species that inhabit leaf litter and soil, what is particularly important in the Amazon Forest, where there are several singular vegetation types. Savannah and forest areas stand out in ...

Amber is fossilized tree resin, and inclusions usually comprise terrestrial and, rarely, aquatic organisms. Marine fossils are extremely rare in Cretaceous and Cenozoic ambers. Here, we report a record of an ammonite with marine gastropods, intertidal isopods, and diverse terrestrial arthropods as syninclusions in mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. We used X-ray–microcomputed tomography (CT) to obtain high-resolution 3D images of the ammonite, including its sutures, which are diagnostically important...

Tropical rainforests play important roles in carbon sequestration and are hot spots for biodiversity. Tropical forests are being replaced by rubber (Hevea brasiliensis) plantations, causing widespread concern of a crash in biodiversity. Such changes in aboveground vegetation might have stronger impacts on belowground biodiversity. We studied tropical rainforest fragments and derived rubber plantations at a network of sites in Xishuangbanna, China, hypothesizing a major decrease in diversity with...

Abstract Trophic differentiation is one of the mechanisms for species coexisting in the communities of soil arthropods. Even in saprophagous animals having a generalized diet, separation of the trophic niches can be achieved by using different behavioural foraging strategies. We examined the foraging behaviour and time budget use in two millipede species, Thyropygus carli and Orthomorpha sp., which share the same habitat and have similar diet, in a lowland monsoon forest in southern Vietnam. We ...

Mixtures of saturated and unsaturated 1-methoxyalkanes (alkyl methyl ethers, representing more than 45.4% of the millipede hexane extracts) were newly identified from the Thai polydesmid millipede, Orthomorpha communis, in addition to well-known polydesmid defense allomones (benzaldehyde, benzoyl cyanide, benzoic acid, mandelonitrile, and mandelonitrile benzoate) and phenolics (phenol, o- and p-cresol, 2-methoxyphenol, 2-methoxy-5-methylphenol and 3-methoxy-4-methylphenol). The major compound wa...

Absence of light, typical of the subterranean environment can lead to the loss of synchronizers of physiological and behavioral activities, mainly those related to photoperiods and light perception. Cave-dwelling species present phototactic responses that vary from photonegative to photopositive ones. There are few studies focusing on reaction to light in millipedes and the most studied species are considered photophobic. In this study, we analyzed the phototactic response of cave-dwelling and e...

Abstract The Ottoman Archives have one of the richest archive collections in the world. However, not all the archived documents are well preserved and some undergo biodeterioration. Therefore, a rapid and promising treatment method is necessary to preserve the collection for following generations as heritage. Radiation presents as an alternative for the treatment of archival materials for this purpose. In this study, we conducted a survey to determine the contamination species and the D10 values...

Abstract To study the effect(s) of soil transplantation on survival and colonization of post-mining spoil heaps by soil fauna, we transplanted blocks of topsoil (3 × 10 × 0.4 m) from a well-developed meadow into the bare post-mining heap in Sokolov coal mining region (Czechia) in 1995. The soil meso and macrofauna were studied in two periods, namely 1995–1997 (initial period) and 20 years later in 2015–16 (follow-up period). We sampled transplanted blocks (Transported), overburden at a 2-m dista...
