A revision of dragon millipedes I: genus Desmoxytes Chamberlin, 1923, with the description of eight new species (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae)
TLDR
The present article includes a review of Desmoxytes s.l., while future articles will deal with Hylomus Cook and Loomis, 1924 and three new genera which preliminarily are referred to as the ‘acantherpestes’, ‘gigas’ and ‘spiny’ groups.
A checklist of the millipedes (Diplopoda) of Myanmar, with an updated list of Leonardo Fea's collecting localities.
TLDR
The millipede fauna of Myanmar comprises 92 species from 34 genera, 13 families and 8 orders, mostly described in 1889-1896, and one species is found to have erroneously been recorded from Myanmar.
Review of the Southeast Asian millipede genus Antheromorpha Jeekel, 1968 (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae)
TLDR
The genus Antheromorpha is redefined and shown to comprise 11 valid species, and detailed descriptions and illustrations of fresh material from Thailand and Malaysia are given, especially regarding colour patterns which appear to be crucial for accurate species identifications.
A checklist of the millipedes (Diplopoda) of Laos.
TLDR
A lot more collecting efforts, which have heretofore been rather strongly biased to caves, are required to amass a representative material of Diplopoda of Laos and make it available for study.
Review of the genus Tylopus Jeekel, 1968, with descriptions of five new species from Thailand (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae)
TLDR
The genus Tylopus currently contains 41 species, all keyed and mapped, including five new from northern Thailand, and expects many more congeners to be discovered in future, in particular from poorly or relatively poorly prospected regions.
A revision of dragon millipedes IV: the new genus Spinaxytes, with the description of nine new species (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae)
TLDR
Nine new species constituting the ‘spiny’ group of dragon millipedes are assigned to the new genus Spinaxytes, endemic to South Myanmar, South Thailand, and Malaysia, and all were exclusively found living on humid rock walls and/or inside small caves.
Two new species of the millipede genus Glyphiulus Gervais, 1847 from Laos (Diplopoda, Spirostreptida, Cambalopsidae)
TLDR
Two new species of Glyphiulus are described and illustrated from northern Laos, one of which seems to be particularly similar to G. costulifer Golovatch, Geoffroy, Mauriès & VandenSpiegel, 2007 but is distinguished by the more sparsely alveolate background fine structure of the metazonae.
The millipede genus Tylopus Jeekel, 1968 (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae), with a key and descriptions of eight new species from Indochina
TLDR
The Indochinese to southern Chinese millipede genus Tylopus currently comprises 62 species, including eight new ones, including four new ones from Laos, and a new record of T. baenzigeri Golovatch & Enghoff, 1993, from northern Thailand is given.
Review of the millipede genus Kronopolites Attems, 1914 (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae), with the description of a new species from Laos
TLDR
The generic diagnosis is updated, a key given to all known species, and their distributions are mapped.
The millipede genus Tetracentrosternus Pocock, 1895 (Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae, Alogolykinae, Alogolykini), with a description of the first, new species from Thailand
TLDR
A new millipede species is recorded in Thailand for the first time and shows a number of unique features that make it necessary to rediagnose this Oriental genus Tetracentrosternus, as well as to key its three currently known species and map their distributions.
