The micropolydesmoid millipede family Haplodesmidae is here recorded from Cambodia for the first time through the discovery of the first, new species of the genus Eutrichodesmus Silvestri, 1910: E. cambodiensis sp. nov. This new species is described from two limestone habitats in Kampot Province, based on abundant material. It is easily distinguished from all related congeners by the following combination of characters: body greyish-brown; limbus roundly lobulate; solenomere partially divided fr...

This chapter deals with the diversity of terrestrial cave invertebrates from the viewpoint of its contribution to global diversity and of the variety of morphological traits and life forms associated with cave habitats. We stress the low diversity of cave compared to non-cave fauna, its uneven taxonomic and geographic distribution, differences in its composition between temperate and tropical bioclimates, and its high originality, due to its richness in endemics, in large radiations and in relic...

: Two new species of Glyphiulus are described and illustrated from northern Laos. The epigean Glyphiulus subbedosae Likhitrakarn, Golovatch & Panha, sp. n. is the second member of the granulatus-group to be found in that country and it seems to be especially similar to G. bedosae Golovatch, Geoffroy, Mauries & VandenSpiegel, 2007. However, it differs from the latter species by a row of several strong setae near the median marginal ridge on the paraprocts, combined with the gnathochilarium being ...
