A new dragon millipede species, Desmoxytes philippina, from the Philippines is described. This fi rst Philippine dragon millipede species expands the previously known distribution of the group, from Southeast Asia (Desmoxytes Chamberlin, 1923) and Australia (Desmoxytoides Mesibov, 2006).

A shocking pink, very spiny new species of “dragon millipede”, Desmoxytes purpurosea sp.n., is described from Thailand, Uthaithani province. Its behaviour suggests that its colouration is aposematic, like that of some bright red congeners. Relations of the new species to congeners are discussed.

Three unusual new Paradoxosomatidae are described from tropical north Queensland. Desmoxytoides hasenpuschorum n. gen., n. sp. closely resembles the dragon millipedes Desmoxytes of southeast Asia, but differs in gonopod details. Tholerosoma monteithi n. gen., n. sp. and T. corrugatum n. sp. are remarkable for their tightly attached coating of soil particles.

The present paper represents some taxonomie notes on the genera Centrodesmus Po-cock 1894 and Pratinus Attems 1937. It is found that the two Chinese known species, C. longispinus Loksa 1960 and C. cornutus Zhang 1982, should be placed in the Pratinusand to it should be assigned also two new species which are described as follows.Pratinus minutuberosus, sp. nov. (figs. 1-7)Eolotype ♂ (810410-1), allotype ♂ (810410-2), paratypes 2♀♀ (810410-3, 4), from Tianlin County, (24° N,. 106° E),, Guanxi Zhu...

Recently, in my paper on the Paradoxosomatidae of Borneo (JEEKEL, 1963), I discussed the taxonomy of the genus Pratinus Attems, 1937, and showed that the species of this genus in the wide sense as conceived by ATTEMS (1937, 1953) in majority belong to three other genera, viz., Orthomorpha Bollman, 1893, Leiozonius Jeekel, 1963, and Gigantomorpha Jeekel, 1963. Pratinus itself was restricted to a concept largely conforming to the idea held by POCOCK when he established this genus under the preoccu...

Abstract Detailed information on sensory organs of Diplopoda especially on antennal sensilla are still sparse and fragmentary. The present study on the antennae of Oranmorpha guerinii (Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae) utilizing scanning electron microscopy revealed the presence of six sensillar types: (1) apical cones, (2) sensilla trichodea, (3) sensilla microtrichodea, (4) sensilla chaetica, (5) sensilla basiconica bacilliformia, and (6) sensilla basiconica spiniformia. External structure and d...

The Philippine fauna of the family Paradoxosomatidae is reviewed and shown to comprise only 12 certain species (+ one dubious), definitely only a fraction of the real diversity to be expected from such a large tropical archipelago. Two new combinations are proposed: Euphyodesmus philippina (Nguyen Duc & Sierwald, 2010), comb. n. ex Desmoxytes Chamberlin, 1923, and Luzonomorpha polilloensis (San Juan & Lit, 2010), comb. n. ex Prionopeltis Pocock, 1895. The first representative of the large, basic...

The large Southeast Asian genus Desmoxytes is slightly rediagnosed. A number of troglomorphic, most likely troglobitic, species occur in southern China. A key is provided to all 10 Desmoxytes spp. currently known from China, including three new presumed troglobites: Desmoxytes eupterygota sp. n. from Hunan Province, as well as Desmoxytes spinissima sp. n. and Desmoxytes lui sp. n. from Guangxi Province. “Desmoxytes” philippina Nguyen Duc & Sierwald, 2010, from the Philippines, is formally remove...
