Default Some clarifications / detailed info on the venom system of centipedes

Hi guys,

A few articles on the venom system of centipedes have been published over the past few months. As the amateur chilopodologist community is continuously growing, I thought that these papers may be of interest to some of you.

Just click on the title and you should access the full publication. Enjoy!

Cheers,

Mika
