EJT volume 500 now online!

On September 9th, 2011, the European Journal of Taxonomy published its first paper. Now, 7 years and 5 months later, volume 500 is published online. In these 89 months, EJT has published 1791 new taxa (1602 new species) in 17,400 pages (which is almost 200 pages per month). EJT is fully funded by a consortium of nine Natural History Institutes (from six European countries) and is thus still diamond open access (neither authors nor readers have to pay).

An artful revision of dragon millipedes


This week, EJT publishes two papers by Ruttapon Srisonchai and co-workers on new genera and species of dragon millipedes from Thailand that, on top of the impressive scientific pictures (photographs and line drawings), each include a watercolour painting by Thai artist Photchana Kriatpraprai.

To ensure that non-millipede workers can also observe the beauty of these paintings and of the dragon millipedes themselves, we exceptionally present them here on our homepage for all to enjoy.

New species of millipede named after EJT and CETAF


EJT vol 445 contains installment 7 of Henrik Enghoff’s monographic work “A mountain of millipedes”, which describes the (mostly endemic) millipede fauna of the Udzungwa Mountains in East Africa. In this 7th part, the author describes 22 new species of the genus Eviulisoma Silvestri, 1910 from the Eastern Arc Mountains (Tanzania).

One of these species is rather special to our journal, as Enghoff has dedicated it to EJT itself: Eviulisoma ejti sp. nov.!!
