ON THE SCUTIGEROMORPHA (CHILOPODA) FROM ISRAEL AND ADJOINING AREAS

In: Israel Journal of Ecology and Evolution

Data are presented on the morphology, zoogeography, and ecology of the scutigeromorph centipedes Scutigera coleoptrata (Linnaeus, 1758) and Thereuonema syriaca Verhoeff, 1905, based on material collected in Israel. Precise localities for the two species are indicated for the first time and the species are re-redescribed and also illustrated for the first time, based on Israeli specimens and Würmli's (1975, 1977) revision of the two genera. A key to species is provided.
