The milliped genus Euryurus Koch, 1847 (Polydesmida: Euryuridae) west of the Mississippi River; occurrence of E. leachii (Gray, 1832) on Crowley’s Ridge, Arkansas

The milliped genus Euryurus Koch, 1847, and the species, E. leachii (Gray, 1832) (Polydesmida: Euryuridae),
are recorded from three sites on the northern part of Crowley’s Ridge (Cross, Lee, and Poinsett counties), Arkansas,
where the only prior familial records are of Auturus evides (Bollman, 1887). Coupled with the published locality of
E. leachii in Phillips Co., at the southern extremity of the Ridge, the only known occurrences of both the genus and
species in Arkansas and west of the Mississippi River are in this physiographic feature. The Arkansas population
is geographically peripheral but anatomically intermediate between the two recognized subspecies, E. l. leachii and
E. l. fraternus Hoffman, 1978, and we do not assign it to a race. Molecular investigations seem necessary to resolve
relationships in the “E. leachii complex.”
