Geophilomorpha differ from other Chilopoda with respect to feeding mechanisms, having an inferred prevalence of food intake by pharyngeal sucking, and all components of the preoral chamber, mandibles, and head endoskeleton are so modified that inferring homologies with other chilopods is a challenge. Light and scanning electron microscopic documentation of the epipharynx, hypopharynx, mandibles, tentorium, and pharynx in 26 species sampling ten families of Geophilomorpha adds 24… Expand
