Hi,

a key to families I worked on the last weeks.
The keys on scolopendra.be might be a bit outdated recently, I hope they are going to be refreshed soon. In the meanwhile you can use this actual key:



Have fun.

Cheers

Keys to genus Scolopendra

Hi,

due to some server-tidy-ups I have accidentally deleted a bunch of files and directories in past.
I uploaded the Scolopendra-keys again, enjoy.



Cheers

Keys to genus Cormocephalus

Hi,

I've been working on this for quite a long time, cause Cormocephalus is a taxonomical mess and - as you can see - includes many species.

Therefore I added my notes to the key.
Don't mind the mysterious abbreviations, they only act as codes to arrange certain parts of the keys in my work.

Key:


Notes:

Don't waste your time in hating. :)
Finally you are the student from both of us, so you should have way more time to develop fresh keys for every species. :D

Oh, I have a job, even a quite stressing one (software developer in projects), but I don't do such sophisticated things in just 4 weeks.
I always work a bit at evening on things like that when I have some spare time.

And even if I wanted to, I have plenty idle times, waiting for literature references to arrive.

And never forget: The day has 24 hours, enough time. ;)

Thanks a lot and I'm glad it can be of use (I like to use it for myself, cause always striking thorugh literature for just one species is so time consuming).

I did Scolopendra and Cormocephalus first cause they include the highest number of still valid species.

Now I'm continueing with the other genera until I have finished everything.
Should be easier than Cormocephalus or Scolopendra.
Next thing will be Ethmostigmus.
Then Otostigmus and Rhysida.

I'll keep you updated!

BTW: I didn't put it as Excel-Sheet online cause I know not all of you have Microsoft system running (maybe rather Linux or MacOS) - and converting can be a mess to Open Office.
If you need it as excel or PDF (more printer friendly) just drop me a mail: TKocer AT gmx.de

Cheers

Errata Scolopendromorpha-key

Hello,

JGE Lewis kindly pointed out that I missed a paper:

- Lewis, 2006 - On the scolopendromorph centipede genus Mimops Kraepelin, 1903, with a description of a new family (Chilopoda: Scolopendromorpha).

Hence genus Mimops is no more placed under Subfamily Cryptopinae but has been transferred to a new family Mimopidae.

Furthermore after his revision and old-world key in 2010 the main diagnostic character of Arthrorhabdus is the length of tooth plates.

I fixed both parts in the key and uploaded it again.
Should show up automatically.

EDIT: PDF-versions available:

Scolopendromorpha: http://www.scolopendra.info/keys/genera_keys_scolopendromorpha.pdf
Scolopendra: http://www.scolopendra.info/keys/scolopendra_keys_english_20091218.pdf
Cormocephalus: http://www.scolopendra.info/keys/cormocephalus_keys_english.pdf

Regards
Turgut

Thanks for all the hard work you put in! I was searching for something just like this, and I find this :worship:

I would love to be abit more up to date on chilopoda taxonomy, but where to start when all you know is the basic orders? :rolleyes:

Cheers,
Jan Philip
