Redescription and phylogenetic analysis of the type species of the giant pill-millipede genus Sphaeropoeus Brandt, 1833 (Diplopoda, Sphaerotheriida, Zephroniidae).
The phylogenetic analysis resolved the position of Sphaeropoeus in the Zephroniidae, but gave no resolution of the intrafamiliar relationships of the family's numerous genera.

Phasmids of Mauritius: Mauritiophasma n. gen., Monoiognosis n. gen., Epicharmus Stål 1875 and discussion on their remarkable eggs (Phasmatodea)
Mauritiophasma is close to the genus Anophelepis Westwood 1859, which is transferred to the tribe Acanthomimini, and features eggs glued to a support by an operculum, a character new for Phasmatodea, believed to be the result of convergent evolution.

Two new skinks (Scincidae: Glaphyromorphus) from rainforest habitats in north-eastern Australia.
Two new species of Glaphyromorphus skinks are described from rainforest areas on Cape York, and the importance of lithorefugia in generating these patterns of rainforest vertebrate endemism on CapeYork is discussed.
