I whant to know as more genus as posible inside of the family Scolopendrinae. I start the list:

-Scolopendra
-Alipes
-Otostigmus
-Etmosthigmus
-Rhysidia
-Cormocephalus

I know there must be another genus. Can any body complete the list ( if you can put "just" one will be glad)

Cheers

mmm, no, but maybe i have to make it more clear where to click and how to follow the keys :?

i though it was quite understandable:
you start at #1, then you have 2 options, clicking on the one that describes your pede best leads you to the next key (C or 2 in the 1st key)
next key will be 2, then you choose A or B,
next key will be A if your scolopendromorph is a Scolopendrid.
When you have a scolopendrid you have to choose between (2 or 21)
(this is the "old" subfamily level, difference between Scolopendrinae and Otostigminae, first key of A)

you just have to start at the top and always have to make a choice between 2 descriptions, which lead you to the next key.
