Data Source ID: 193

Myriatrix is a Scratchpads-based Virtual Research Environment proposed to the International Society of Myriapodology. It allows collaborative editing and linking of the classification, literature, and morphological traits of the many-legged terrestrial invertebrate groups Onychophora and Myriapoda (to the inclusion of Euthycarcinoidea). The taxonomic backbone is based on the Species 2000 & ITIS Catalogue of Life (2015 release). The literature database contains circa 1300 references, spanning from 1535 to present. This dataset represents the output of an ongoing endeavor, and therefore is periodically updated. For more information, please see and the original database proposal on How to cite: The Fellegship of the Rings (2020 onwards): Myriatrix. Available from
