Two new species of Phryssonotus (Diplopoda : Synxenidae) from southern and western Australia
TLDR
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.
Two remarkable species of Penicillata (Diplopoda, Polyxenida) from Table Mountain National Park (Cape Town, South Africa)
TLDR
Two new species of the families Polyxenaceae and Synxenidae, are described from Table Mountain National Park, South Africa, which appear to occupy an intermediate position between Phryssonotus (12 tergites) and Polyxenoidea (maximum of 11 tergite).
New species of Polyxenida in Israel (Diplopoda, Penicillata)
TLDR
The identification of 5 species from a recent collection of 23 specimens from two areas in Israel are given, one of which is identified as possibly a new species in the genus Polyxenus and likely to be synonymous with the specimens identified as Polyxanus lagurus Linnaeus, 1758 in a previous study.
Reproduction, egg morphology and development observed in two Australian penicillate millipedes, Lophoturus queenslandicus (Lophoproctidae) and Phryssonotus novaehollandiae (Synxenidae) (Diplopoda)
TLDR
The results indicate that the reproductive strategies of Australian lophoproctid and synxenid species are adapted to their harsh environment.
The millipedes of Barrow Island, Western Australia (Diplopoda)
TLDR
Six species of millipede are recorded from Barrow Island, including three species of pin-cushion millipedes of the order Polyxenida, Lophoturus madecassus, and one species of the family Haplodesmidae (genus and species indet).
Two remarkable new species of Penicillata (Diplopoda, Polyxenida) from Table Mountain National Park (Cape Town, South Africa)
TLDR
Two new species of the families Polyxenaceae and Synxenidae, are described from Table Mountain National Park, South Africa, which appear to occupy an intermediate position between Phryssonotus (12 tergites) and Polyxenoidea (maximum of 11 tergite).
Phryssonotus novaehollandiae Silvestri, 1923: the sole Australian representative of the millipede Family Synxenidae
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
