By Elena V. Mikhaljova, S. I. Golovatch

This can be a entire synopsis of the millipede fauna of Asian Russia, the mammoth Palaearctic zone extending from the Ural Mountains within the west to the Pacific coast and adjoining islands within the east. The fauna, which has no fewer than 103 species, 39 genera, 17 households, and 5 orders, is reviewed and summarized. A historic account, a evaluate of the morphology and ecology of the millipedes within the sector, and zoogeographical notes are supplied. Illustrated descriptions and diagnoses of, in addition to keys to, all major millipede taxa recorded within the Asian a part of Russia are incorporated. additionally, all on hand information at the taxonomy and distribution of the region's Diplopoda are summarized. Dr E. V. Mikhaljova works on the Institute of Biology and Soil technological know-how, a ways jap department of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Vladivostok, Russia. The ebook displays her lifetime adventure with the systematics, biology, ecology and distribution of Asian Diplopoda. regardless of sure unavoidable lacunae, this paintings permits the millipede faunas of Siberia and the Russian a long way East to be ranked one of the best identified on this planet, not to mention Asia.

Sample text

Head sparsely setose along external margins only (Fig. 28). Comma-shaped eyes with 3 ocelli in lower row and 1-2 setigerous knobs in upper row. Densely setose antennae (Fig. 29) in situ reaching to the end of somite 3. 7:1, respectively. Collum ellipsoid, much broader than head. 6. 6. Telson with three pairs of sparse setae on pleural bolster ventrally. Ozopores set off behind suture dividing pro- and metazona by a low and narrow ridge. On somite 5, ozopores located on prozonite right upon suture dividing pro- and metazona (Fig.

Among the legged somites, segments 2-4 are monopodous, while the others diplopodous; that is, each carries two sterna and two pairs of legs. Typically, each diplosegment, excluding the collum, is divided by a transverse suture into two halves; the anterior one is termed as prozonum, or prozonite, while the posterior one as metazonum, or metazonite. The prozonite is always less in diameter than the metazonite; hence it is partly or almost fully withdrawn in a telescope-like way inside the lumen of the preceding metazonum.

Striation of metazona not reaching the very rear margin of ring, 4-5 striae in a square with sides equal to metazonital length of a midbody ring. Metazona bare, without setae. Ozopores small, touching the suture between proand metazona from behind. Telson without tail dorsally. Each anal valve bearing only 3 setae located near caudal margin. Anal scale with two setae. Legs slender, not very long. Male leg pair 1 unciform. Gonopods (Fig. 48) consisting of distinct pro-, meso-, and opisthomere. Flagellum of promere thin, placed mesoparabasally.
