Locality records

There are more than 14000 identified specimen lots of described, native Australian millipedes in museums. You can download these records from this page as tab-separated-value (TSV) files which can be opened in any spreadsheet or text editor, or as KML files which can be opened in Google Earth or another spatial browser. To download the files, click on the TSV or TSV icon next to the taxon name below. Please read the introduction below before downloading.


Each TSV file has all or most of the following associated data:

Note that some records lack latitude and longitude because the locality is too vague ('Tasmania', 'New Holland'). These records will not appear in a map generated from the TSV file. Further, I have not included records:

The TSV files are in UTF-8 encoding. For more information on the records, see the metadata page.

The KML files contain only two items of information besides the location of the record. The first item is the repository and registration number of the specimen lot, if known, or other information which may help you to associate that KML placemark with the corresponding record in the TSV file. The second item is the spatial uncertainty of the record (see above). When viewing the KML in Google Earth, click on the marker and a balloon will pop up displaying these two items of information. Records without latitude and longitude (see above) have not been included in the KML file.

The TSV and KML files are made available here with a Creative Commons license (attribution + non-commercial, by-nc). You are welcome to use or copy the locality records for non-commercial purposes. Please cite the Millipedes of Australia URL in your work, together with the date you accessed the information. Note that each TSV and KML file has the date of the most recent compilation in the filename, as in 'lissodesmus_10-December-2016.tsv'. Please make sure you cite this date when re-using the records.

If you notice any errors or other problems in the records, please let me know by email (robert (dot) mesibov (at) gmail (dot) com). The TSV files have been generated from databases which contain more information than has been included here.
