A common terminology for the external anatomy of centipedes (Chilopoda)
TLDR
A common terminology for the external morphological characters of centipedes (Chilopoda) is proposed, selecting those most frequently used or those that have been introduced explicitly from the alternatives used in the English literature. Expand
Appendage loss and regeneration in arthropods: a comparative view
TLDR
Lack of autotomy is likely to be the plesiomorphic condition in arthropods, a condition maintained in the Myriochelata (myriapods plus chelicerates) and probably close to the origin of a Malacostraca-Hexapoda clade. Expand
Phylogeny of Geophilomorpha (Chilopoda) inferred from new morphological and molecular evidence
TLDR
Strong support is found for the monophyly of Geophilomorpha, the basal dichotomy between Adesmata and Placodesmata = Mecistocephalidae, and thebasis dichotomy withinAdesmata between two clades that are recognized here as superfamilies Himantarioidea and Geophiloidea. Expand
Parental Care in Dicellophilus carniolensis (C. L. Koch, 1847): New Behavioural Evidence with Implications for the Higher Phylogeny of Centipedes (Chilopoda)
TLDR
The behaviour observed in D. carniolensis is probably common to the whole of Mecistocephalidae, thus supporting the basal position of this clade within the Geophilomorpha. Expand
Geophilomorph centipedes from the Cretaceous amber of Burma
TLDR
The modern appearance of this species and its membership among deeply nested extant clades are consistent with molecular estimates that most of the diversity of crown- group Geophilomorpha originated before the Late Creta- ceous. Expand
The Mecistocephalidae of the Japanese and Taiwanese islands (Chilopoda: Geophilomorpha)
TLDR
This dissertation aims to provide a history of mecistocephalidae of the Japanese and Taiwanese islands and investigates the role ofcephalus in the formation and management of these islands. Expand
16 Chilopoda – Geographical distribution
TLDR
This chapter provides a list of the major sub-continental regions that are broadly identifiable as hosting a distinct centipede fauna. Expand
Morphology and phylogeny of Dicellophilus, a centipede genus with a highly disjunct distribution (Chilopoda: Mecistocephalidae)
TLDR
The centipede genus Dicellophilus is confirmed as a highly distinct lineage, supported by synapomorphies in the labrum and in the pattern of coxal organs, and the phyletic relations between the species have been analysed based on morphological evidence. Expand
Trunk anomalies in the centipede Stigmatogaster subterranea provide insight into late-embryonic segmentation.
TLDR
Variation in dorsal mispairing anomalies demonstrates that segments, as traditionally defined in arthropod morphology, are not the effective developmental units throughout embryogenesis. Expand
Inferring the degree of incipient speciation in secondary contact zones of closely related lineages of Palearctic green toads (Bufo viridis subgroup)
TLDR
Genetic interactions between younger lineages of early Pleistocene divergence in northeastern Italy are studied to strengthen support for the rule of thumb that wide hybrid zones with strong introgression may develop when secondary contacts occur, whereas narrower zones with restricted gene flow form when divergence exceeds 3 My.
