Tran, B.T.T., Tran, H.T.X. & Bonato, L. 2019. A new soil centipede from South-East Asia with a unique arrangement of ventral glands, and a revised synopsis of Gonibregmatidae (Chilopoda, Geophilomorpha). Zookeys 838: 111–132. DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.838.33131 Reference page. 

Gonibregmatidae are a paraphyletic (with respect to Neogeophilidae and Eriphantidae) family of soil centipedes belonging to the superfamily Geophiloidea.[1][2] The number of leg-bearing segments in this family varies within species and ranges from 57 to 191.[3] This family includes the species Gonibregmatus plurimipes, which can have as many as 191 leg pairs, the maximum number found in the class Chilopoda.[4]
