Diversity, distribution patterns, and fauno-genesis of the millipedes (Diplopoda) of mainland China.

Zookeys 2020 28;930:153-198. Epub 2020 Apr 28.

Department of Entomology, College of Agriculture, South China Agricultural University, 483 Wushanlu, Guangzhou 510642, China South China Agricultural University Guangzhou China.

Based on all available information, 339 species from 71 genera, 26 families, and eleven orders of Diplopoda have hitherto been recorded from mainland China, the fauna thus being very rich, albeit far from completely known, comprising various zoogeographic elements and populating very different environments. Diplopods mainly occur in various woodlands, in caves, and high in the mountains. Most species (> 90 %, usually highly localised, including 160 cavernicoles), 18 genera, and one family are strictly endemic to continental China. Read More

No Tömösváry organ in flat backed millipedes (Diplopoda, Polydesmida).

Zookeys 2020 28;930:103-115. Epub 2020 Apr 28.

Institute of Evolutionary Biology and Ecology, University of Bonn, An der Immenburg 1, 53121, Bonn, Germany University of Bonn Bonn Germany.

The Tömösváry organ is a sensory structure of the head in myriapods and some other terrestrial arthropods. Due to its variable shape, size, and position in millipedes (Diplopoda) the Tömösváry organ is commonly used as diagnostic character in taxonomic descriptions and often included in phylogenetic analyses. For the Polydesmida, the largest millipede order, the Tömösváry organ is inconsistently stated as being either absent or present as a pear-shaped pit covered by a membrane or cuticular disc.

HCN emission by a Polydesmid Millipede Detected Remotely by Reactive Adsorption on Gold Nanoparticles Followed by Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry (LDI-MS).

J Chem Ecol 2020 Apr 22;46(4):455-460. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Stevens Institute of Technology, 07030, Hoboken, NJ, USA.

Hydrocyanic acid (HCN) is a well-known defensive allomone in the chemical arsenal of millipedes in the order Polydesmida. The presence of HCN in the headspace vapor of adult Xystocheir dissecta (Wood, 1867), a common millipede from the San Francisco Bay Area, was traced by laser desorption/ionization-mass spectrometry (LDI-MS). To accomplish this, the headspace vapor surrounding caged, live millipedes was allowed to diffuse passively over gold-nanoparticle (AuNP) deposits placed at various distances from the emitting source.

Mate choice, copulation, genital morphology, and sperm storage are not very well understood in millipedes. The use of three-dimensional x-ray computed tomography (μCT) provides new morphological data regarding millipede reproductive systems in both the female and male, including chitinous sclerites and membranes, muscles, glands, oviducts, and sperm conduits. Here we present a complete integrated account of the morphology and function of the female genital organs in the family Polydesmidae (Diplopoda: Polydesmida) using μCT, UV fluorescence imaging, and scanning electron microscopy.

Review of the millipede genus Bollman, 1893 (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae) in Vietnam, with several new records and descriptions of two new species.

The genus is shown to currently be represented in Vietnam by ten species or varieties, including new records of (Attems, 1937), (de Saussure, 1860), (Attems, 1937) and Jeekel, 1964, and two new species, and A key to all eight species and two varieties known to occur in Vietnam is provided. Although the morphological characters that have been traditionally used for taxonomy are here considered superior to molecular ones, molecular-based phylogenetic relationships and taxon assignments within the tribe Orthomorphini are provisionally analyzed using fragments of the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) mitochondrial gene. The preferred phylograms, both rooted and unrooted, demonstrate the monophyly of the tribe Orthomorphini, but due to the special, uncertain or even controversial position of , which occurs closer to the genera and , the genus in current usage appears to be polyphyletic.

Institute of Bioscience, UNESP - São Paulo State University, Rio Claro, São Paulo, Brazil.

Millipedes are organisms of the edaphic fauna and have been used as bioindicators for the evaluation of pollutants in the environment, as they are in constant contact with the soil. This study used the millipede Rhinocricus padbergi as surrogate to evaluate the toxicity of two metallic-insecticides that has been developed for leaf-cutting ants management. Millipedes were exposed in terrariums containing different concentrations of the metallic-insecticides and, after periods of 21 and 90 days, three individuals from each terrarium were dissected in order to remove the midgut, the organ where absorption of nutrients and, consequently, toxic substances occurs.

Forkhead box (Fox) transcription factors evolved early in animal evolution and represent important components of conserved gene regulatory networks (GRNs) during animal development. Most of the researches concerning Fox genes, however, are on vertebrates and only a relatively low number of studies investigate Fox gene function in invertebrates. In addition to this shortcoming, the focus of attention is often restricted to a few well-characterized Fox genes such as (), () and . Read More

Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA.

There is growing interest in voxelated matter that is designed and fabricated voxel by voxel. Currently, inkjet-based three-dimensional (3D) printing is the only widely adopted method that is capable of creating 3D voxelated materials with high precision, but the physics of droplet formation requires the use of low-viscosity inks to ensure successful printing. By contrast, direct ink writing, an extrusion-based 3D printing method, is capable of patterning a much broader range of materials. Read More

Vision Res 2019 Dec 14;165:36-44. Epub 2019 Oct 14.

Lund Vision Group, Department of Biology, Lund University, Sweden.

Millipedes are a species-rich and ancient arthropod clade which typically bear a pair of lateral compound eyes with a small number of large facets. To understand the visual tasks that underlie the evolution of millipede eyes, their spatial resolving performance is of key importance. We here investigate the spatial resolution of the millipede Cylindroiulus punctatus using behavioural assays. Read More

The Forgotten, Not Studied or Not Valorized Tricuspid Valve: The Transcatheter Revolution Is Coming.

Cardiol Res 2019 Aug 31;10(4):199-206. Epub 2019 Jul 31.

Hospital Ilha do Leite, Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil.

The tricuspid valve (TV) has been known as the forgotten valve. However, considering recent information from scientific studies, this nomenclature may need to be adjusted for the valve, which also needs to be better studied and understood. For decades, tricuspid regurgitation (TR) was not fully appreciated and was never the priority. Read More

Factors Influencing Damage by the Portuguese Millipede, Ommatoiulus moreleti (Julida: Julidae), to Crop Seedlings.

J Econ Entomol 2019 12;112(6):2695-2702

Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation, Black Mountain, Canberra, ACT, Australia.

In different parts of the world, the increasing agricultural practice of retaining crop stubble in fields across seasons has led to population increases of soil-dwelling arthropods, primarily detritivorous species. These species typically play a beneficial role in the ecosystem, but some, including the Portuguese millipede (Ommatoiulus moreleti (Lucas)) can be sporadic pests. To assist in better understanding of pest risk, this study examines why O. Read More

Cutis 2019 Apr;103(4):195-196

Department of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, USA.

Millipedes often are regarded as harmless but are capable of causing adverse reactions through the secretion of toxic chemicals. Millipede burns cause localized pigmentary changes that may be associated with pain or burning in some patients. Clinical suspicion and physical examination are paramount to the diagnosis of millipede burns. Read More

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Direct Annuloplasty with the Millipede IRIS Ring.

Interv Cardiol Clin 2019 07 8;8(3):261-267. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, University of Michigan Health System, Floor 3 Reception C, 1500 E Medical Center Dr SPC 5856, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-5856, USA.

Mitral valve ring annuloplasty is a surgical gold standard and is used routinely during surgical mitral valve repair of primary or secondary mitral regurgitation. The Millipede IRIS annuloplasty ring is the first transcatheter, transfemoral, transseptal, semirigid, complete annuloplasty ring to be delivered to the mitral valve annulus. Initial results in humans demonstrate that the Millipede IRIS ring is safe, and can effectively reduce the mitral annular diameter leading to a clinically significant reduction or elimination of mitral regurgitation.

Zoological Research Museum A. Koenig, Leibniz Institue for Animal Biodiversity, Bonn, Germany Zoological Research Museum A. Koenig, Leibniz Institue for Animal Biodiversity Bonn Germany.

The myriapod fauna of the mega-diverse country of Indonesia is so far insufficiently known, with no species lists or determination keys. In order to obtain an overview of the faunal composition of the Myriapoda in an Indonesian forest system, the fauna of the Halimun-Salak National Park in western Java was explored during the dry season (September-October 2015) in the framework of the German-Indonesian INDOBIOSYS project (Indonesian Biodiversity Discovery and Information System). A total of 980 Myriapoda specimens were collected by hand by 3-4 researchers from three different sites in the national park, from which 796 specimens were determined to a higher taxonomic level (class, order, family) and 617 specimens were determined to morphospecies.

The millipede family Pyrgodesmidae and the genus are recorded from Thailand for the first time, being represented there by The new species is distinguished by the evident apicodorsal trichostele on the last tibia of both sexes and the gonopodal telopodite being particularly complex, quadripartite, consisting of the longest, mesal, suberect solenomere branch; a slightly shorter, similarly slender, acuminate endomere branch tightly appressed to the solenomere; a somewhat shorter, caudal, strongly curved, armed exomere process; and a very distinct, low, lateral, sac-shaped velum at their base. This situation strongly resembles the one observed in the geographically closest Golovatch & VandenSpiegel, 2015, from Myanmar, but the shapes and armament of all outgrowths of the gonopodal telopodite are clearly different. A key to all three pecies known from Indochina or Myanmar and an updated checklist of all 21 species of the genus are provided. Read More
