Distribution of the American milliped genus Boraria Chamberlin, 1943: Introductions of B. stricta (Brölemann, 1896) in New York and B. infesta (Chamberlin, 1918) in Connecticut; indigenous occurrence of B. profuga (Causey, 1955) in Louisiana (Diplopoda: Polydesmida: Xystodesmidae).

The southern Appalachian millipeds Boraria stricta (Brölemann, 1896) and B. infesta (Chamberlin,

The southern Appalachian millipeds Boraria stricta (Brölemann, 1896) and B. infesta (Chamberlin,
1918) (Diplopoda: Polydesmida: Xystodesmidae) have become established in Westchester Co., New York, and
Hartford Co., Connecticut, respectively. Only three individuals are available for the latter, but B. stricta has
established a reproducing population in southern New York state. This species is also recorded from Bland Co.,
Virginia, in the Ridge and Valley Physiographic Province. Boraria profuga (Causey, 1955) comprises two allopatric
populations, one in Montgomery Co., Arkansas, and the other in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. Distributional records
and gonopod drawings are presented for these species plus B. deturkiana (Causey, 1942).
