Two new species of Phryssonotus (Diplopoda : Synxenidae) from southern and western Australia
- BiologyAustralian Journal of Zoology
Examination of the colour patterns of live specimens, other morphological characters and DNA analysis together were found to be the most reliable method of correctly distinguishing between these three species.
Four new species of Unixenus Jones, 1944 (Diplopoda, Penicillata, Polyxenida) from Australia
A revised diagnosis of Unixenus karajinensis and new details on the distribution of the species are given and a key is presented to 10 of all 11 currently known species of the genus.
Taxonomy and biology of a new species of Pincushion Millipede of the genus Monographis (Diplopoda: Polyxenidae) from Australia.
The genus Monographis may be divided into two groups based on the arrangement of sensilla on the 6th antennal article: species with a crescent-shape arrangement and those with a triangular arrangement.

The latitude given for the single collecting event of this species in Corringle state forest is incorrect and should be 33°40'00"S not 33°22'12"S.
Phryssonotus novaehollandiae Silvestri, 1923: the sole Australian representative of the millipede Family Synxenidae
- Environmental Science
Examination of synxenid millipedes from a number of collections confirms that Phryssonotus novaehollandiae is the sole representative of the genus and family in Australia. P. novaehollandiae was…
The identity of phryssonotus burmiticus (Cockerell, 1917) (Diplopoda, Polyxenida, synxenidae) in cretaceous amber from Myanmar
- Biology, Geology
All relevant millipede material from Burmite can now be unequivocally assigned to Phryssonotus and represents the geologically oldest member of the order Polyxenida known to date.
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.
