Millipedes new to science

Three new genera of Craspedosomatid millipede (out of seven found) and nine new species (out of ten found) were collected during David Bilton' s and BMIG's excursions to Galicia, NW Spain, in 1993 and 2004 respectively.

The new species include Galicisoma n.g. desmondkimei n.sp.; Galicisoma n.g. biltoni n.sp. and Turdulisoma helenreadae n.sp., which are named in honour of some of those prolific BMIG members who participated.
