Introductory materials for a revision of the milliped family Trichopetalidae are presented, and the species of three of the five genera are described (Nannopetalum n. gen., Trigenotyla Causey, 1951, Causeyella, n. gen.). Nannopetalum is related to Trichopetalum, and includes three new species from the Appalachian piedmont: N. pattersonorum (Virginia), N. vespertilio (North Carolina), and N. fontis (Alabama). Trigenotyla Causey includes four species: T. parca Causey (Arkansas), T. vaga Causey… Expand

TLDR
The first known authentic chordeumatidan spermatophores are described for Trichopetalum dux (Chamberlin), 1940, and the production of a sticky secretion from the bases of the segmental setae, possibly defensive in function, is also described. Expand

Laboratory observations on the behavior of two troglobitic millipede species in the genus Causeyella (Chordeumatida: Trichopetalidae) from the southern Ozarks
TLDR
Causeyella dendropus and C. youngsteadtorum were reared under laboratory conditions and displayed occasional aggression by striking or boxing, and the sticky droplets that subtend the long setae that cover the body appear to serve to trap small intruders that get under the setae. Expand
An Inventory of Endemic Leaf Litter Arthropods of Arkansas with Emphasis on Certain Insect Groups and Diplopoda
TLDR
A study of the millipedes of Arkansas resulted in the first checklist and key to all millipede species in the state, and general circadian rhythm data on selected arthropod groups were reported and found to agree with similar data collected from pitfall trap studies. Expand
