  • There is a rediscovery of a order:


    SIPHONIULIDA


    Only known from 5-6 specimen (no males were known, so the systematic place of this order was unknown)
    but redescripted in 2003, I think. Now also the males are known. Very small, only 2-5 mm long animals. Whitish

  • Hi!
    It is an article:


    P.Sierwald, W.A. Shear u.a. Berlin 2003
    "The millipede order Siphoniulida and its phylogenetic position."
    Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary research
    41 (2) p. 87-99
    ISSN: 0947-5745


    If you have big problems, I can send it out

  • Hello again


    The order is accepted. Sierwald&Co are giving a phylogenetic tree, but they use only 30 or so characters. I think, the diplopod phylogeny is to messy(you have 154 diplopod families, many of them with only one species) so we will hopefully see a progress there in the next ten years.


    Good night
    Thomas
