Based on morphological evidence, we newly define the genus Stenotaenia Koch, 1847 (=Scnipaeus Bergsoe & Meinert, 1866; =Simophilus Silvestri, 1896; =Onychopodogaster Verhoeff, 1902; =Insigniporus Attems, 1903; =Notadenophilus Verhoeff, 1928; =Bithyniphilus Verhoeff, 1941; =Schizopleres Folkmanova, 1956; =Euronesogeophilus Matic, 1972; all syn. nov.) as including the following 15 species: Stenotaenia linearis (Koch, 1835) (=Geophilus simplex Gervais, 1835; =Geophilus brevicornis Koch, 1837… Expand

Morphology, taxonomy and distribution of Diphyonyx gen. n., a lineage of geophilid centipedes with unusually shaped claws (Chilopoda: Geophilidae)
A new genus Diphyonyx is proposed here for a previously unrecognised lineage of geophilid centipedes. It is distinct from other geophilids in its unique combination of morphological characters,Expand
An unusually elongate endogeic centipede from Sardinia (Chilopoda: Geophilidae)
The new centipede resembles the rare Ibero-Pyrenean genus Galliophilus Ribaut & Brolemann, 1927 in some features, especially in the forcipular segment, and the temperate European species Geophilus electricus and suggests adaptation to a more strictly endogeic habit than other geophilids. Expand
The centipede fauna (Chilopoda) of the island of Cyprus, with one new lithobiomorph species.
The centipede (Chilopoda) fauna of Cyprus, which was almost unknown, has been analysed by examining more than 1,800 specimens sampled from 185 sites, besides revising critically the few publishedExpand
An annotated catalogue of the epigeic and cave centipedes (Chilopoda) of Sardinia
Published and unpublished data on the epigeic and cave centipedes of Sardinia (Italy) are summarized and critically revised in this paper. Fifty-four species are listed and discussed (1Expand
Molecular-based estimate of species number, phylogenetic relationships and divergence times for the genus Stenotaenia (Chilopoda, Geophilomorpha) in the Italian region
It is found that small-sized oligopodous species belong to a single clade that originated about 33 million years ago, and some preliminary evidence of the related genus Tuoba being nested within Stenotaenia is obtained. Expand
A Catalogue of the Geophilomorpha Species (Myriapoda: Chilopoda) of Romania
The main goal of this work is to update the list of known geophilomorph species from taxonomic and systematic point of view, and to include also records of new species. Expand
Chilopoda Geophilomorpha of Europe: a revised list of species, with taxonomic and nomenclatorial notes.
An annotated list is provided for the genera and species of Chilopoda Geophilomorpha recorded from Europe, including Macaronesia, and introduces the following 116 new synonymies. Expand
The True Identity of Schendyla furcidens Kaczmarek, 1962 (Chilopoda: Schendylidae)
It is concluded that S. furcidens is a junior subjected synonym of S. nemorensis (syn. nov.) because of the furcate shape of the labral teeth and differential characters in mandibles and maxillae were found to be artefacts emerging during slide preparation. Expand
First results of the German Barcode of Life (GBOL) – Myriapoda project: Cryptic lineages in German Stenotaenia linearis (Koch, 1835) (Chilopoda, Geophilomorpha)
The strongly different Stenotaenia linearis lineages within Germany, independent of geography, are a strong hint for the presence of additional, cryptic StenOTAenia species in Germany. Expand


Phylogeny and systematics of the Arrupinae (Chilopoda Geophilomorpha Mecistocephalidae) with the description of a new dwarfed species
A cladistic analysis of the subfamily Arrupinae is performed, based on morphological data (23 characters) from all the 16 species recognized, and the peculiar morphology of Nannarrup hoffmani is analysed as a possible instance of miniaturization. Expand
The present knowledge of the centipede fauna of Anatolia (Chilopoda)
A synthesis is presented of the present knowledge of the centipede Fauna of the Anatolian peninsula from faunisric and biogeographical points of view. Expand
On Sardinian centipedes (Chilopoda)
Abstract Thirty-seven species from Sardinia are reported of which one species is new (Geophilus piae n. sp.), and many of the others were unknown until now for Sardinia or Italy. Two new synonymiesExpand
Adding mitochondrial sequence data (16S rRNA and cytochrome c oxidase subunit I) to the phylogeny of centipedes (Myriapoda: Chilopoda): an analysis of morphology and four molecular loci
Relationships within Chilopoda (centipedes) are assessed based on 222 morphological characters, complete 18S rRNA sequences for 70 chilopod terminals, the D3 region of 28S r RNA for 65 terminals and cytochrome c oxidase subunit I sequences for 45 terminals. Expand
The analysis of the faunistic elements showed that 25% of the Cretan centipedes have European and South European affinities, 36% have Mediterranean, Northeast, and East Mediterranean aff inities, 12% are Balkanic, 10% have Palaearctic affinITIES, 5% have West Asiatic affin qualities, and 12% have Cretans endemics.

The centipede Strigamia maritima: what it can tell us about the development and evolution of segmentation.
  • W. Arthur, A. Chipman

  • BioEssays : news and reviews in molecular, cellular and developmental biology
  • 2005
Strigamia maritima turns out to be a tractable system both at the ecological level of investigating differences in mean segment number between populations and at the molecular level of studying the expression patterns of developmental genes, including the recent finding of a double-segment periodicity in the expression of two Strigamia segmentation genes.

Myriapod metamerism and arthropod segmentation
An improved model for arthropod segmentation is sketched, with some doubt about the homology between annelid and arthropody segmentation, and the final repetitive pattern is defined as metasegmental. Expand
The evolution of segmentation of centipede trunk and appendages
Coevolutionary trends involving the segmentation of the trunk, the segmentations of the appendages (especially the antennae), the postembryonic developmental schedule and the presence or absence of regeneration ability supports a recent view of theappendages as evolutionarily divergent duplicates of the main body axis.
