A comprehensive taxonomic revision of the circum-Mediterranean julid tribe Brachyiulini is undertaken. A total of 13 genera and 103 species are assigned to the tribe. One new genus, one new subgenus, and 10 new species are described from Greece, Turkey or Iran: Byzantorhopalum (Byzantorhopalum) elephantum sp. n., B. (Ioniulus) clavamum subgen. n., sp. n., Cyphobrachyiulus (Cyphobrachyiulus) spartanus sp. n., C. (Diaxylus) graecus sp. n., Graecoiulus skopelius gen. n., sp. n., Italoiulus… 
Omobrachyiulus mesorientalis sp.n., the first record of the millipede genus Omobrachyiulus Lohmander, 1936 in the Near East (Diplopoda: Julida: Julidae: Brachyiulini)
A new species from Israel and Lebanon is described, with the number of published species of Omobrachyiulus amounting to 13.
The millipede tribe Brachyiulini in the Caucasus (Diplopoda, Julida, Julidae)
The distribution patterns of the Caucasian Brachyiulini and their biogeographic implications are discussed and the diagnoses and descriptions of some genera and subgenera are refined and complemented.
A new species of Syrioiulus Verhoeff, 1914 from Iran, with remarks on the taxonomy of the genus (Diplopoda: Julida: Julidae)
A new species of Syrioiulus lohmanderi is described from material collected in Gilan Province, northwestern Iran, and is morphologically most similar to S. astrabadensis and S. persicus, also known only from the northern parts of Iran.
The mostly cavernicolous millipede genus Stygiiulus Verhoeff, 1929, stat. nov.: taxonomy, distribution and phylogenetic relationships (Diplopoda, Julida, Julidae)
The blind and mostly endogean julid genus Stygiiulus Verhoeff, 1929 stat. nov. is reviewed to include ten species: S. ausugi (Manfredi, 1953) comb. nov., S. fimbriatus (Strasser, 1971) comb. et stat.
Diversity and distribution of the millipedes (Diplopoda) of Georgia, Caucasus
O Ongoing and future research on the millipedes of the Caucasus will undoubtedly allow for many more novelties and details of the diversity and distribution of Georgia’s Diplopoda to be revealed or refined.
New records of millipedes (Diplopoda) from caves in Crimea and the Caucasus
The results of a taxonomic treatment of Diplopoda collected recently in caves of Crimea and the Caucasus are presented, allowing for the distribution of a number of millipede species to be considerably refined.
A checklist of the millipedes of Georgia, Caucasus (Diplopoda)
Much more work to include alpine and cave environments is required in order to reveal and refine the real diversity of Georgia’s Diplopoda.
Morphology and mating behaviour in the millipede Megaphyllum unilineatum (C.L. Koch, 1838) (Myriapoda, Diplopoda, Julida) under laboratory conditions
Investigating mating behaviour in laboratory conditions and identifying traits that could possibly be the target of pre-copulatory selection in the julid species Megaphyllum unilineatum found differences in certain behavioural sequences are similar to those previously reported in M. bosniense, while such similarity is not detected with respect to morphological variation in the mentioned species.
