Phylogeny of geophilomorph centipedes: old wisdom and new insights from morphology
The evolution of segmentation of centipede trunk and appendages
Coevolutionary trends involving the segmentation of the trunk, the segmentations of the appendages (especially the antennae), the postembryonic developmental schedule and the presence or absence of regeneration ability supports a recent view of theappendages as evolutionarily divergent duplicates of the main body axis.
Phylogeny and systematics of the Arrupinae (Chilopoda Geophilomorpha Mecistocephalidae) with the description of a new dwarfed species
A cladistic analysis of the subfamily Arrupinae is performed, based on morphological data (23 characters) from all the 16 species recognized, and the peculiar morphology of Nannarrup hoffmani is analysed as a possible instance of miniaturization.
A catalogue of the geophilomorph centipedes (Chilopoda) from Central and South America including Mexico
A troglomorphic geophilomorph centipede from southern France (Chilopoda: Geophilomorpha: Geophilidae)
- D. Foddai
- Geology, Biology
- 1 February 1999
The species is the first troglomorphic and possibly trogLobitic geophilomorph thus far known, with very elongated antennae and legs, and abundant sensory setae, which exhibits striking degenerative traits and developmental anomalies.
Evolutionary trends and patterns in centipede segment number based on a cladistic analysis of Mecistocephalidae (Chilopoda: Geophilomorpha)
. Evolutionary changes in segment number during the radiation of Mecistocephalidae, a group of geophilomorph centipedes with segment number usually invariant at the species level, were explored…
New taxa of Neotropical Geophilomorpha (Chilopoda)
A new family (Macronicophilidae) is established and the hitherto unknown malrc of Schendylops marchantdrlae is described and two species are redescribed from the type and new material.
The geophilomorph centipedes (Chilopoda) of BrazilianAmazonia
A catalogue of the Chilopoda Geophilomorpha known from Brazilian Amazonia is presented and all but six of the species are known from this region.
Myriapoda at "Reserva Ducke", Central Amazonia/Brazil
Analysis of segment number and enzyme variation in a centipede reveals a cryptic species, Geophilus easoni sp. nov., and raises questions about speciation
Analysis of a unique pattern of variation in British populations of Geophilus carpophagus Leach, coupled with other morphological and enzyme data, reveals a cryptic species of geophilomorph centipedes, G. easoni sp.
