Millepedes can range from 0.2cm to 30cm. There are approximately 10,000 species in 13 orders and 115 families.
The Museum’s Diplopoda collection contains approximately 2241 species with many types.
The collection has a world wide representation and is housed mainly in alcohol, but there are a few dried specimens too.
There is a large amount of unidentified material which likely contains species not currently represented in the collection or possibly new to science.
If you would like to study any of the specimens in the below database and help us identify them, please contact Jan Beccaloni, the Curator of Arachnida and Myriapoda, to arrange a loan.
