We present here an updated outline of the large-scale faunistic diversity of Chilopoda, based on all published information on the geographical occurrence of species by countries, which has been made available in the electronic on-line catalogue Chilo- Base. In particular, we analyse comparatively (i) the geographical distribution and the geographical variation in species number of all orders and families, (ii) the centipede fauna of 17 major sub-continental regions, and (iii) the most frequent and the most peculiar patterns of distribution of centipede genera.

Abstract

We present here an updated outline of the large-scale faunistic diversity of Chilopoda, based on all published information on the geographical occurrence of species by countries, which has been made available in the electronic on-line catalogue Chilo- Base. In particular, we analyse comparatively (i) the geographical distribution and the geographical variation in species number of all orders and families, (ii) the centipede fauna of 17 major sub-continental regions, and (iii) the most frequent and the most peculiar patterns of distribution of centipede genera.
