Abstract The millipede family Pyrgodesmidae and the genus Cryptocorypha are recorded from Thailand for the first time, being represented there by C.enghoffisp. n. The new species is distinguished by the evident apicodorsal trichostele on the last tibia of both sexes and the gonopodal telopodite being particularly complex, quadripartite, consisting of the longest, mesal, suberect solenomere branch; a slightly shorter, similarly slender, acuminate endomere branch tightly appressed to the…

A new micropolydesmoid millipede of the genus Eutrichodesmus Silvestri, 1910 from Cambodia, with a key to species in mainland Southeast Asia (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Haplodesmidae)
TLDR
This new species is described from two limestone habitats in Kampot Province, based on abundant material, and is easily distinguished from all related congeners by the following combination of characters: body greyish-brown; limbus roundly lobulate; solenomere partially divided from acropodite by a digitiform lobe, but without hairpad.

A revision of dragon millipedes II: the new genus Nagaxytes gen. nov., with the description of three new species (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae)
TLDR
The ‘acantherpestes’ group of dragon millipedes, formerly placed in the genus Desmoxytes Chamberlin, 1923, is revised and assigned to the new genus Nagaxytes Srisonchai, Enghoff & Panha, with three new species described from Thailand.
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 revision of dragon millipedes III: the new genus Gigaxytes gen. nov., with the description of three new species (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae)
TLDR
The ‘gigas’ group of dragon millipedes, formerly placed in the genus Desmoxytes Chamberlin, 1923, is revised and assigned to the new genus Gigaxytes gen. nov, with three new species described from Thailand and Myanmar.
Morphological adaptations of the semiaquatic millipede Aporodesminus wallacei Silvestri 1904 with notes on the taxonomy, distribution, habitats and ecology of this and a related species (Pyrgodesmidae Polydesmida Diplopoda).
TLDR
The hypothesis is put forth that, as is the case for numerous (sub)cosmopolitan water-dwellers, dispersal of this minute millipede species could have been due to zoochory at least not less likely than to hydrochory or anthropochorism, whereas the current record can readily be associated with man/human settlements.
A new species of the millipede genus Cryptocorypha Attems, 1907,from Myanmar (Diplopoda: Polydesmida: Pyrgodesmidae)
TLDR
A new species of the rather large, basically tropical/subtropical Asian genus Cryptocorypha is described from western Myanmar, having 20 body segments in the M, combined with apparently the most complex gonopod structure.

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.
Morphological and mitochondrial DNA data reshuffle the taxonomy of the genera Atopochetus Attems, Litostrophus Chamberlin and Tonkinbolus Verhoeff (Diplopoda: Spirobolida: Pachybolidae), with descriptions of nine new species
TLDR
This is the first DNA study of SE Asian Pachybolidae and as such it provides a basis for further evolutionary and biogeographic studies of South-East (SE) Asian millipedes.

TLDR
An illustrated description of the surface sculpture of the prozonite, the limbus and the intercalary cuticular micro-scutes on the metazonite is given for the first time for the studied families, together with an account of some other poorly known surface structures.
