Abstract
    Centipedes (Chilopoda) and millipedes (Diplopoda) are terrestrial arthropods, most abundant in forest environments. A few species, however, have a more or less obligate relationship to the shore and are usually found under jetsam. Centipedes are predators, whereas most millipedes feed on litter, dead wood and other decaying plant matter. The sources of the present list were Brölemann (1932), Eason (1964), Foddai et al. (1995), Strasser & Minelli (1984).
