Is mass correlated with width among red millipedes Centrobolus Cook, 1897?
Author(s): Mark Ian Cooper
Abstract: Body mass variation was correlated with male and female width in the red millipede genus Centrobolus. Mass and width (r=0.91, Z score=3.46, n=8, p<0.01) in males (r=0.91, Z score=2.13, n=5, p=0.02) and females (r=0.995, Z score=4.27, n=5, p<0.01) were correlated. C. inscriptus females have the largest width (7.02 mm) and the highest mass (2.61 g) while C. digrammus has the lowest width (4.00 mm) and the lightest mass (0.68 g).
