We continue to report, in the sixth of a series of papers, new geographic records for millipeds of the state, including noteworthy records for some taxa collected from Crowley’s Ridge in eastern Arkansas. This contribution documents 47 new co. records and includes records for 19 species within 9 families and 5 orders. More uncommon millipeds found included Okliulus carpenteri (Parajulidae), Eurymerodesmus newtonus (Eurymerodesmidae), Pseudopolydesmus minor (Polydesmidae) and undescribed species…

INTRODUCED MILLIPEDS (ARTHROPODA: DIPLOPODA) OF ARKANSAS, LOUISIANA, OKLAHOMA, AND TEXAS
Abstract Introduced (or exotic) species are any taxa living outside their native range. The ecological impact of these species is highly variable although many have altered, at the ecosystem level,
An Inventory of Endemic Leaf Litter Arthropods of Arkansas with Emphasis on Certain Insect Groups and Diplopoda
TLDR
A study of the millipedes of Arkansas resulted in the first checklist and key to all millipede species in the state, and general circadian rhythm data on selected arthropod groups were reported and found to agree with similar data collected from pitfall trap studies.

TLDR
The milliped genus Euryurus Koch, 1847, and the species, E. leachii (Gray, 1832), are recorded from three sites on the northern part of Crowley’s Ridge, Arkansas, where the only prior familial records are of Auturus evides (Bollman, 1887).

A synopsis of the milliped genus Abacion Rafinesque (Callipodida: Caspiopetalidae)
The milliped genus Abacion is summarized, and tesselatum Rafinesque, lactarium (Say), magnum (Loomis), and texense (Loomis) are recognized as valid species even though a low level of gene interchange
0239. Millipeds from the eastern Dakotas and western Minnesota, USA, with an account of Pseudopolydesmus serratus (Say, 1821) (Polydesmida: Polydesmidae); first published records from six states and the District of Columbia
TLDR
The distribution of P. serratus, which extends from Maine to South Carolina and the Florida panhandle, west to Texas, and north to Fargo, North Dakota is described and discussed, which hypothesize suggests replacement by younger, more successful species, as postulated for a similar distributional gap in Scytonotus granulatus.
