The centipede genus Clinopodes

  title={The centipede genus Clinopodes},
  author={Lucio Bonato and Claudia Koch},
Diagnosis, circumscription, species-level taxonomy and geographical occurrence of the genus Clinopodes C. L. Koch, 1847 (Chilopoda, Geophilomorpha, Geophilidae) are revised by integrating published information with new evidence on its morphological diversity. Clinopodes is clearly distinguishable from all other geophilid lineages by a combination of features mainly in the forcipular segment, the trunk sternites and the ultimate legs. It is widespread in south-eastern Europe, from the Alps to… Expand

Phylogeny of Geophilomorpha (Chilopoda) inferred from new morphological and molecular evidence
Strong support is found for the monophyly of Geophilomorpha, the basal dichotomy between Adesmata and Placodesmata = Mecistocephalidae, and thebasis dichotomy withinAdesmata between two clades that are recognized here as superfamilies Himantarioidea and Geophiloidea. Expand
Centipedes (Chilopoda) from the Rostov-on-Don Region, southern Russia
The most complete information about the centipedes of the region is presented in the papers of Minoranskiy [1975, 1977]. He cited 17 species, including six newly recorded: Scutigera coleoptrataExpand
New insights into Romanian Chilopoda: Redescription of Clinopodes intermedius Dărăbanţu and Matic, 1969 (Geophilomorpha: Geophilidae)
Clinopodes intermedius is morphologically re-described with updated illustrations based on the newly-collected specimens, including the first description of a male specimen and the first molecular data for this species; a complete overview of important taxonomic characters is given, which includes hitherto unknown details about the mouthparts and last leg-bearing segment.

Taxonomic status and behavioural documentation of the troglobiont Lithobiusmatulici (Myriapoda, Chilopoda) from the Dinaric Alps: Are there semiaquatic centipedes in caves?
L.matulici is shown to be most closely related to Lithobiusremyi Jawłowski, 1933, type species of the subgenus Thracolithobius Matic, 1962, and to be a promising character for interspecific differentiation within Lithobiomorpha. Expand

The populations of a number of species show gradients of genetic diversity from a genetically richer East to a poorer West, which might indicate better glacial survival conditions for this biogeographical group of species in the more eastern parts of Europe. Expand
