  • Abstract Millipedes play an important role in the decomposition of organic matter in the subterranean environment. Despite the existence of several cave-adapted species of millipedes in adjacent geographic areas, their study has been largely ignored in Portugal. Over the last decade, intense fieldwork in caves of the mainland and the island of Madeira has provided new data about the distribution and diversity of millipedes. A review of millipedes from caves of Portugal is presented, listing fourteen species belonging to eight families, among which six species are considered troglobionts. The distribution of millipedes in caves of Portugal is discussed and compared with the troglobiont biodiversity in the overall Iberian Peninsula and the Macaronesian archipelagos.

  • Funding Text This study was supported by the SYNTHESYS Project (DK-TAF-2416), financed by European Community Research Infrastructure Action under the FP7 Capacities Program, and by Fauna Iberica X (Ref.CGL2010-22267-C07-01), which allowed A.S.R. to visit the Natural History Museum of Denmark. We are grateful to Marian Ramos for providing the support from Fauna Iberica. We express our gratitude to the caving clubs NEUA, CEAE-LPN, GPS, Geonauta, and CEEAA for kind support in the fieldwork in mainland Portugal. We thank Jean-Paul Mauries, Paris, for his preliminary evaluation of the new chordeumatidan genus, and Nesrine Akkari and David Koon-Bong Cheung for all kinds of help during A.S.P.S.R.'s stay in Copenhagen.
