Damacornu gen. nov. (type species: D. transversum gen. et sp. nov.), Geotypodon papei sp. nov. and Spinotarsus fortehamatus sp. nov. are described, and Helicochetus dimidiatus (Peters, 1855), H. mutaba Kraus, 1960 and Hoffmanides dissutus (Hoffman, 1963) are recorded from the Udzungwa Mts, Tanzania. A complete overview of the 39 odontopygid species now known from the Udzungwa Mts is given, including notes on endemism, biogeographical relationships and altitudinal distribution patterns. 
A mountain of millipedes IX: Species of the family Gomphodesmidae from the Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania (Diplopoda, Polydesmida)
A new genus and six new species of the family Gomphodesmidae from the Udzungwa Mts are described, including Pogoro alopias Rosenmejer & Enghoff sp. nov., Pogoro siren Rosenmejer & Enghoff sp. nov.,

TLDR
The new genus Geotypodon gen. nov. is described, which includes two species from the Udzungwa Mountains and 18 previously described species hitherto incorrectly assigned to Odontopyge Brandt, 1841.
A mountain of millipedes V: three new genera of Odontopygidae from the Udzungwa mountains, Tanzania (Diplopoda, Spirostreptida, Odontopygidae)
Three new genera of Odontopygidae are described, all based on new species from the Udzungwa mountains, Tanzania, and all monotypic: Casuariverpa gen. nov. (type species: C. scarpa gen. et sp. nov.),
A mountain of millipedes II: The genus Aquattuor Frederiksen, 2013 - five new species from the Udzungwa Mountains and one from Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania (Diplopoda, Spirostreptida, Odontopygidae)
TLDR
The genus Aquattuor Frederiksen, 2013 is revised, and six new species are described: A. longipala Enghoff sp.
A mountain of millipedes IV: Species of Prionopetalum Attems, 1909 from the Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania. With notes on "P." fasciatum (Attems, 1896) and a revised species key (Diplopoda, Spirostreptida, Odontopygidae)
TLDR
Odontopyge fasciata Attems, 1896, is transferred from Prionopetalum to Aquattuor Frederiksen, 2013, and new illustrations are given.
A new genus of mongoliulid millipedes from the Far East of Russia, with a list of species in the family (Diplopoda, Julida, Mongoliulidae)
TLDR
A new genus is described from the Russian Far East, Koiulus gen. nov, with which it shares the absence of ozopores from individual body rings distributed along the body, a condition so far otherwise unknown in the superorder Juliformia.
A new species of the Chaleponcus dabagaensis-group from Mount Rungwe, Tanzania-support for an extended concept of the Eastern Arc Mountains (Diplopoda, Spirostreptida, Odontopygidae).
TLDR
The new species belongs to the Chaleponcus dabagaensis group which is otherwise restricted to the Udzungwa Mountains and joins a growing set of taxa indicating close biogeographical connections between Mount Rungwe and the Eastern Arc Mountains in a strict sense.
Checklist of the Millipedes (Diplopoda) of Tanzania
TLDR
A checklist of millipedes (Diplopoda) known to occur in Tanzania is given, including seven species never before recorded from the country, and eight species erroneously recorded from Tanzania are excluded.
Phoretic mite associates of millipedes (Diplopoda, Julidae) in the northern Atlantic region (North America, Europe)
TLDR
Sixteen morphospecies of mites were collected from across the eastern U.S.A. and the United Kingdom in 2008–2009, 12 of which from a total of 13 species of julid millipedes, and none of these 12 species was attached to a single host species.
A mountain of millipedes I: An endemic species-group of the genus Chaleponcus Attems, 1914, from the Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania (Diplopoda, Spirostreptida, Odontopygidae)
TLDR
The Chaleponcus dabagaensis -group is well characterized by apparently apomorphic gonopodal characters, presumably monophyletic, and the first example of a major radiation within the Udzungwas, and co-occurrence of multiple species, inter-specific differences in body size and unusual tarsal setation of a few species tentatively suggest adaptive radiation.
East African odontopygid millipedes 3: Two new genera; Lamelloramus and Aquattuor proposed to contain three new species (Diplopoda; Spirostreptida; Odontopygidae).
Two new genera and three new species in the millipede family Odontopygidae are described; Lamelloramus rhombi- formis, L. triangularis and Aquattuor denticulatus. All three species are found in the
