Alphabetical list of native genera


Millipedes of Australia is going offline in mid-2019. At the time it is taken offline, the website will be "frozen" (no further updates) and will be archived in the Zenodo public data repository.
 
The taxonomic information in Millipedes of Australia is now largely replicated in MilliBase, which is a taxonomic catalogue for all the world's millipedes.
 
This website previously had downloadable TSV and KML files with almost 15,000 locality records for named, native Australian millipedes. All the Tasmanian records are now in the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) and most of the non-Tasmanian records can be found either in ALA or GBIF. Please note, however, that records for recently described species may not be listed under the species name in either ALA or GBIF, due to delays in updating of the aggregators' taxonomic look-up tables.
 
I am retiring from millipede studies in 2019. I am very grateful to the specialists and others who contributed information to Millipedes of Australia over its 13-year lifetime (2006-2019), and I am confident they will offer similar assistance to its global replacement, MilliBase.
