Millipedes and centipedes (Myriapoda: Diplopoda, Chilopoda) in Swiss heated greenhouses, with seven species new for Switzerland
TLDR
The international plant trade provides opportunities for the introduction of exotic species into tropical greenhouses around the world with species originating from different parts of the world being introduced into greenhouses in Switzerland.
Myriapods (Myriapoda). Chapter 7.2
TLDR
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.
Millipede (Diplopoda) distributions: a review
TLDR
A highly mosaic distribution of the diversity in Diplopoda over the globe is rooted in the group’s general structure, biology, ecology and phylogeny, which has long made the Diplipoda a group most attractive for biogeographical reconstructions.
The milliped family Pyrgodesmidae in the continental USA, with the first record of Poratia digitata (Porat) from the Bahamas (Diplopoda: Polydesmida)
TLDR
Poratia digitata is recorded for the first time from the Bahamas, Louisiana, and Texas, and M. digitatus and ‘L.’ bituberculatus are newly recorded from Alabama and Florida, respectively; Ilyma colotlipa Chamberlin is placed in synonymy under M. formicarius.
