While sampling spiders, they collected three milliped species, two new to the island. The ‘ acantherpestes ’ group of dragon millipedes, formerly placed in the genus Desmoxytes Chamberlin, , is revised and assigned to the new genus Nagaxytes Srisonchai, Enghoff & Panha gen. nov. Desmoxytes acantherpestes Golovatch & Enghoff, is the type species of the new genus and is redescribed as N. acantherpestes (Golovatch & Enghoff, ) gen. et comb. by: 3.

Six species of millipeds are reported for the first time from the Galapagos Islands, raising the known diplopod fauna to eight species. Agenodesmus nullus is described (Furhmannodesmidae). Six members of the fauna are in the eyeless order Polydesmida, and one species each are in the orders Polyxenida and by: Millipedes differ from centipedes in that their legs are paired in each body segment (except for the first three). Centipedes have only one leg per body segment. Millipedes come in a variety of colors. Some have flatter bodies, while others are very tubular. Certain species are even toxic. Most coil up when threatened to protect their legs.   Millipedes hatching from the pupoid usually have three pairs of legs; during their postembryonic growth they acquire more segments and more legs. This process is known as anamorphosis. Three types of anamorphosis are recognized. In euanamorphosis, every moult is accompanied by addition of new segments, even after the attainment of sexual by: Three new millipeds of the order Colobognatha from Tennessee, Texas, and Lower California with records of previously known species by H.
