    A list of the genus and family-group names in the Class Diplopoda from Pensoft Publishers, pp. Pensoft Series Faunistica No ISBN The Excel spreadsheet contains all millipede genus-group names, with the type-species and complete bibliographic reference. For each genus, the complete higher classification is given.   MILLIPEDE, the popular name of the best known members of a group of the Arthropoda, scientifically known as Diplopoda, and formerly united with the Chilopoda (see Centipede), the Pauropoda and the Symphyla as an order of the class classification, however, has of late years been abandoned on account of the recognition of .

On contemplating Madagascar, my mind naturally turns to millipedes. Well, millipedes and lemurs. The Texas-size island, located east of Africa, is home to species of lemurs—the only place on Earth where these big-eyed, snouty-nosed primates are found—and 91 percent of these species are endangered, threatened or vulnerable, thanks to illegal logging and tropical forest .

    Sphaerotheriida is an order of millipedes in the infraclass Pentazonia, sometimes known as giant pill inhabit Southern Africa, Madagascar, South and Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Like the Northern Hemisphere pill millipedes of the order Glomerida, these millipedes can roll into a ball when they are rolled-up, most . Millipedes and centipedes, while related, are very different. Millipedes' bodies are rounder, while centipedes have a flatter appearance and elongated antennae. Centipedes are also much quicker than millipedes. The most important difference is that centipedes are carnivores and some species can bite.

It inhabits the eastern seaboard of North America west to Georgetown, Texas, north of the Ottine wetlands. It has a nearly cylindrical gray body, reaching a length of 4 inches ( mm).

When threatened, they sometimes curl up Family: Spirobolidae. So that’s why that species was put in that genus!” Many of the illustrations are from publications digitally archived in BHL.

This is not the world's largest millipede, though. Millipedes from tropical regions in Africa grow to over mm long. The word "millipede" means " legs." Millipedes have many legs, but never as many as that.

Millipede Research. While some genera and species have been proposed for forms in other regions of the world, the objective of my faunistic and alpha taxonomic research for over 35 years has been the elucidation of the North American (NA) diplopod fauna.

English names for various orders, families, genera and species of millipede have been in use for some time (e.g. Lawrence ; Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife Biodiversity Database).

Millipede, (class Diplopoda), any member of the arthropod class Diplopoda, distributed worldwide and commonly grouped with several other classes as approximat species live in and eat decaying plant matter; some injure living plants, and a few are predators and scavengers.

The characteristic feature of the group is the presence of diplosomites. Millipedes are arthropods in the class ‘diplopoda’. This class contains aro species, 15 orders and families. Millipedes are found in most parts of the world from back gardens to Rainforests, on all continents except Antarctica.

The Class Diplopoda is divided into three subclasses. The subclass ‘Penicillata’ contains species millipedes whose exoskeleton is. Geographic Range. North American millipedes, including several sub-species, are found in the United States in all states east of the Mississippi River and nine states to the west (Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas) and Canada (Quebec and Ontario provinces).

Watermolen' The milliped fauna of Wisconsin remains poorly known. The total Canadian fauna consists of 6 orders, 20 families, 43 genera, and 62 species/subspecies, nearly one-third of which (20 species in total) are importations from the Palearctic and Asiatic.

Spectacular colors and the unusual body shape of some species have made millipedes widely kept terrarium animals. This book provides practical and proven suggestions for how to keep them successfully. full-color photos, 11 colour drawings, 2 diagrams and 67 distribution s: 3.

Revision of some of the oldest species in the millipede genus Sphaerotherium, Brandt,(Diplopoda, Sphaerotheriida R.V. & Hoffman, R.L. Checklist of the millipeds of North America. Bulletin of the US National Museum,1– are several pages at the end of the book devoted to millipedes, centipedes.

Moist soil beneath decaying leaf litter or mulch is a millipede's prime habitat. Millipedes lack stingers or pinchers to fend off predators like birds, toads, and small mammals. Instead they rely on their hard exoskeleton as a first line of defense. Some species can even produce hydrogen cyanide, a noxious liquid that is toxic to small animals.

There have been around 7, species of millipedes (sometimes spelled millipeds) described scientifically, with a projected estimate of possi total species occurring around the globe. Around species have been described from the United States and Canada. However, the family Parajulidae, the largest group from North America, has not been studied.

The Millipede Life Cycle. Mated female millipedes lay their eggs in the soil. Some species lay eggs singly, while others deposit them in clusters.

Depending on the type of millipede, the female may lay anywhere from a few dozen. Types of Millipedes Millipede Species Identification. Arthropod experts have identified almost 1, species of millipedes in the United States, so the types of millipedes are plentiful and quite diverse.

Millipedes are fairly easy to identify since they have many legs – one pair of legs on their first three body segments and two pairs on the other body segments.

Millipedes range widely in length. Typical North American forms are 5–6 cm in length; tropical ones may reach nearly 20 cm in length. Hoffman () has published a checklist of millipedes of North and Middle America.

Keys to North American families of millipedes were published by Hoffman (). The hypothetical ancestral millipede is shown to have developed by hemianamorphosis.

Euanamorphosis was acquired by the ancestral species of Helminthomorpha. Within this clade, Chordeumatida and Merocheta have secondarily become teloanamorphic, whereas some Juliformia seem to have returned to hemianamorphosis.Many genera are localized to one continent, as well2.

Thus, many species of millipedes are endemic to their birthplaces. In comparison to temperate areas, there are more species of millipedes found in tropical areas, and these tropical millipedes can grow much larger, as well.

*Millipedes of the order Julida are widespread compared to other orders.
