The status of Heteromurini Absolon & Ksenemann is analyzed and a new diagnosis is proposed to the tribe. New chaetotaxic characteres were added to distinguish Dicranocentrus Schött and
The survey of Seira Lubbock, 1870 (Collembola, Entomobryidae, Seirinae) from Iberian Peninsula and Canary Islands, including three new species.
A survey of Seira fauna from Iberian Peninsula and Canary Islands is presented, including the description of three new species from Spain, and an identification key to 31 species with known dorsal chaetotaxy from Western Palearctic region is provided.
Phylogeny of Neotropical Seirinae (Collembola, Entomobryidae) based on mitochondrial genomes
This study generates and analyzes the mitochondrial genomes of 26 terminal taxa of Entomobryidae, and one species of Paronellidae to clarify the phylogenetic relationships within the Neotropical Seirinae, and validated that Tyrannoseira is a distinct lineage and proposes the elevation of Lepidocyrtinus to genus.
Three new species of Entomobryoidea (Collembola: Entomobryomorpha) from Brazilian Caatinga-Cerrado transition, with identification keys to Brazilian Cyphoderus, Pseudosinella and Trogolaphysa species.

Dorsal Chaetotaxy of Neotropical Species Supports a Basal Position for the Genus Lepidonella Among Scaled Paronellidae (Collembola, Entomobryoidea)
It is concluded that most similarities in chaetotaxy between New World Lepidonella and Lepidocyrtus represent symplesiomorphies, and that Paronellidae s.
