The Eutrichodesmus fauna of mainland China, by far the largest genus in the Indo-Australian family Haplodesmidae, is reviewed and shown to encompass 23 species (of a total of 45), all keyed. The following nine new species, all presumed troglobites, are described: Eutrichodesmus triangularis sp. n., from Sichuan, Eutrichodesmus lipsae sp. n., from Guangxi, Eutrichodesmus tenuis sp. n., Eutrichodesmus trontelji sp. n., Eutrichodesmus latellai sp. n., Eutrichodesmus obliteratus sp. n. and Eutrichod...

RESUME Suite a l'examen de nombreux specimens, les auteurs exposent des donnees nouvelles sur les chilopodes du Parc national du Mercantour, du departement des Alpes-Maritimes et de leurs environs. Ces observations ameliorent la connaissance de la repartition de certaines especes rares et localisees et permettent en outre de decrire une nouvelle espece en provenance d'Entrevaux (Alpes-de-Haute-Provence) : Lithobius (Lithobius) lemairei n. sp. Cette remarquable nouvelle espece a ete trouvee dans ...

Millipedes (classs Diplopoda) are terrestrial saprophagous arthropods. This paper gives a short description of their classification, biogeography, anatomy and physiology, mainly focusing on problems faced by diplopods in freshwater. Some 'subaquatic' species are well adapted to water and can survive long periods of submersion. Particular cases are documented from Amazonia, Australia and European caves, mainly among the order Polydesmida.

In the Oriental Region, the large, basically Northern Hemisphere family Trichopolydesmidae is shown to currently comprise 18 genera and 43 species. Based mainly on gonopod structure, all of them, as well as the whole family, are (re)diagnosed, including five new genera and seven new species. These new taxa are keyed, also being the first to be described from Indochina in general and from Vietnam in particular: Aporodesmella gen. n., with three species: A. securiformis sp. n. (the type species), ...

Nannorrhacus parvus sp. n. from Martinique, only the 2nd congener, is just the 4th species o f the family Platyrhacidae to be found in the Antilles. It differs from N. luciae (Pocock, 1894), from St. Lucia, Lesser Antilles, by the following characters: a smaller size; presence of 3 or 2 transverse rows of larger setigerous tubercles on collum and postcollum metaterga, respectively; absence of areations on metaterga; far more strongly tuberculate lateral edges of paraterga; ventrolateral location...

The small, basically Oriental family Opisotretidae is rediagnosed, reclassified, and shown to comprise the following seven genera, all keyed: Carlotretus Hoffman, 1980, with two species, including Carlotretus triramus sp. n. from southern China; Corypholophus Attems, 1938, with two species, one in Vietnam, the other in the Ryukyus, Japan; Martensodesmus Golovatch, 1987, with eight species, all keyed, including Martensodesmus cattienensis sp. n. from southern Vietnam, as well as Martensodesmus be...
