On some surface structures of potential taxonomic importance in families of the suborders Polydesmidea and Dalodesmidea (Polydesmida, Diplopoda)
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.
Fertility tables of two populations of the parthenogenetic species Poratia salvator (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Pyrgodesmidae).
TLDR
Fertility tables were used to access and to compare the fertility and survival of two populations of the parthenogenetic species Poratia salvator from two areas with distinct characteristics to increase the understanding of millipede ecological plasticity.
An annotated list of the millipede (Diplopoda) species described by Johann Carl
Abstract: Johann Carl described 390 species or subspecies of millipedes during his long career at the Muséum d'histoire naturelle de Genève, studying specimens collected on his own expeditions and on
A millipede missing link: Dobrodesmidae, a remarkable new polydesmidan millipede family from Brazil with supernumerary rings (Diplopoda, Polydesmida), and the establishment of a new suborder Dobrodesmidea.
TLDR
The new species is unique among millipedes of the order Polydesmida in having 39+t rings in adult males, two rather than four spinnerets, and in its highly plesiomorphic gonopods, which resemble those of basal members of the orders Callipodida and Stemmiulida.
Millipedes and centipedes in German greenhouses (Myriapoda: Diplopoda, Chilopoda)
TLDR
Thirty-five diplopod and 18 chilopod species were found to occur in greenhouses, of which 15 (3 Chilopoda, 12 Diplopoda) are restricted to this type of habitat.
Comparative study of the ovarian morphology in the order Polydesmida (Diplopoda) and description of unusual structures in the female reproductive system
TLDR
A comparative study of the ovarian morphology of three species from this order is performed to increase the understanding of the morphological evolution of this system in Polydesmida.
Arthropod Post-embryonic Development
The study of arthropod post-embryonic development is a chapter of biology that requires a new conceptual framework. Some of the reasons behind the inadequacy of the prevailing approach are common to
Comparative study of the ovarian morphology in the order Polydesmida (Diplopoda) and description of unusual structures in the female reproductive system.
TLDR
A comparative study of the ovarian morphology of three species from this order is performed to increase the understanding of the morphological evolution of this system in Polydesmida.
Additional moults into ‘elongatus’ males in laboratory-reared Polydesmus angustus Latzel, 1884 (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Polydesmidae) – implications for taxonomy
TLDR
Comparisons between millipede orders indicate that post-embryonic development is less strictly canalized in Polydesmida than in Chordeumatida, which implies that the adult number of body rings is of limited taxonomic value in Poly Desmida and should not be viewed as a character of generic importance.
Life cycle of Poratia salvator (Diplopoda: Polydesmida: Pyrgodesmidae)
TLDR
The biological cycle and reports the parthenogenetic reproduction of Poratia salvator Golovatch & Sierwald, 2000 under environmental conditions are described and a tendency towards a parthenogensetic reproduction in this species is reported.
