A mass occurrence of the millipede Calyptophyllum longiventre (Verhoeff, 1941) in Mardin, south‐east Turkey, is reported. Descriptive notes on this poorly known species are given, including the first description of male characters. Comparison is made with other instances of millipede mass occurrences, previous swarming events of millipedes in Turkey are summarized, and a note on the distribution of the genus Calyptophyllum is given. 
Myriapods (Myriapoda). Chapter 7.2
The introduction of some species into Europe could have begun already in historical times with an increase in trade between ancient Greeks and Romans with cities in the Near East and North Africa, and with the trade between Europe and some tropical countries, especially after the discoveries of the Americas and Australia.

First Estimate of the Intrinsic Rate of Increase of a Millipede: Polydesmus angustus (Polydesmida: Polydesmidae) in a Seasonal Environment
This estimate suggests that outbreaks of annual polydesmidan species in greenhouses or under favorable field conditions can be generated by a small number of fertilized females in 2 yr cycles, and indicates that biennial females may be more successful as colonists than annual females. Expand
Swarming behaviour and mass occurrences in the world’s largest giant pill-millipede species, Zoosphaerium neptunus , on Madagascar and its implication for conservation efforts (Diplopoda: Sphaerotheriida)
The almost obligate swarming behaviour in the widespread Z. neptunus species might represent a conservation problem, since whole swarms, and therefore a whole generation in a given area, can be lost through anthropogenic interferences such as over-collecting for the pet trade, habitat fragmentation or road kills.

The distribution and dispersal of the introduced millipede, Ommatoiulus moreletii (Diplopoda: Iulidae), in Australia
The millipede, Ommatoiulus moreletii, is indigenous to South-Western Europe. The species has been introduced to Australia where it is in large numbers and constitutes a severe nuisance. TheExpand
A revision of the Paectophyllini and Calyptophyllini: millipedes of the Middle East (Diplopoda: Julida: Julidae)
The julid tribes Paectophyllini (syn.: Symphyoiulini, Catamicrophyllini) and Calyptophyllini are revised. The following genera and species of Paectophyllini are described or redescribed:Expand
The activity patterns of Ommatoiulus moreletii (Diplopoda: Iulidae) in South Australia
Day to day variations in activity were related to changes in temperature and moisture and the activity of older stadia was greater than that of younger stadia. Expand
Anamorphosis in millipedes (Diplopoda)—the present state of knowledge with some developmental and phylogenetic considerations
The contrasting principles of elongation and contraction, subject of much debate among diplopodologists, are shown both to have played a role in the course of millipede evolution. Expand
