Gene enzyme system technique was used to analyze genetic differentiation among 9 populations of 4 species of the genus Catamachilis endemic to the Iberian peninsula. The values of genetic distance and identity observed, confirmed the existence of three well differentiated species (C. amara, C. ancorata, C. franzi), while the population of C. clipeata was found to be strictly related to C. franzi in spite of the presence of some morphological characters which seem clearly to separate them(.)

Genetic differentiation and detection of cryptic species in the genus Lepismachilis (Insecta: Microcoryphia) from the Western Mediterranean region
TLDR
Allozyme data did not provide adequate information to resolve evolutionary relationships among the species, nor did they confirm the validity of the two subgenera (Lepismachilis and Berlesilis), but genetic divergence values indicated that the six species are well differentiated and allozyme profiles were diagnostic for all of them.
Taxonomy of Zygentoma and Microcoryphia: historical overview, present status and goals for the new millennium
TLDR
The state of art of both "thysanuran" orders, Microcoryphia (bristletails) and Zygentoma (silverfish) is analysed and main research areas for the next Millennium are suggested.
