Abstract Polydesmidae are represented in Taiwan by seven species in two genera. Neither of the genera is endemic to Taiwan, but six of the species are, including five new: Nipponesmus minor sp. n., Epanerchodus bispinosus sp. n., Epanerchodus curtigonopus sp. n., Epanerchodus flagellifer sp. n. and Epanerchodus pinguis sp. n. In addition, the diagnosis of the hitherto enigmatic genus Nipponesmus Chamberlin & Wang, 1953 is refined vis-à-vis the especially similar, Central Asian, Siberian and… Expand
The millipede family Polydesmidae in the Caucasus (Diplopoda: Polydesmida).
The family Polydesmidae is represented in the Caucasus by two genera and 11 species, including a highly polymorphous and widespread species, apparently in a stage of active speciation, subendemic to the entire region. Expand
Review of the millipede genus Epanerchodus Attems, 1901 in continental China, with descriptions of new species (Diplopoda: Polydesmidae).
Four new species of Epanerchodus are described from mainland China and E. koreanus Verhoeff, 1937 is formally new to the fauna of China due to fresh samples from Jilin. Expand

Distribution, diversity patterns and faunogenesis of the millipedes (Diplopoda) of the Himalayas
The Himalayas support a highly rich, diverse, multi-layered, mostly endemic diplopod fauna that is largely autochthonous and sylvicolous, formed through abounding in situ radiation and vicariance events. Expand

Evolution of distribution and habitat patterns in endemic millipedes of the genus Dolichoiulus (Diplopoda: Julidae) on the Canary Islands, with notes on distribution patterns of other Canarian species swarms
The scarcity of pluri-insular Dolichoiulus species, in connection with information on phylogeny, suggests that speciation has mainly taken place within individual islands. Expand
Distribution and diversity of millipedes of the Ryukyu Archipelago, with the Senkaku and Daito Island Groups: A literature review (Arthropoda: Diplopoda)
The results suggest that large portions of the Ryukyu Archipelago have been poorly sampled, and that further collections would considerably improve the present inventory of millipedes. Expand
Records of millipeds (Diplopoda) from Japan and other Oriental areas, with descriptions of new genera and species
The material on which the present report is based is largely in the American Museum of Natural History in New York and in the collection of the senior author at the University of Utah, and the names of the several collectors are given in connection with the different species. Expand
