Polydesmus muralewiczi— Lang, 1959: 1790 (M); Kobakhidze, 1965: 391 (R); Lokšina and Golovatch, 1979: 384 (M); Talikadze, 1984: 143 (R); Zuev, 2014: 348 (R, D).

Material examined. 1 male (lectotype, designated herewith), 1 female (paralectotype, designated herewith), “Typen” (ZISP), RUSSIA, Kuban Region, Station Psebai, under stones during ascent to Hill Gerisgel, 20.V.1911, leg. D. Volnukhin; 4 juv. (ZMUM), Krasnodar Prov., Mostovskoy Distr., Shedok, N of Psebai, karst funnel, wet Fagus  , Acer  , Quercus  etc. forest, 650 m a.s.l., 4.VIII.1986; 1 male (ZMUM), Stavropol Prov., E of Georgievsk, Quercus  , Carpinus  etc. forest, litter and under bark, 28 and 31.V.1982; 1 male, 2 females (ZMUM), Stavropol Prov., Kursavska, Robinia  and Rosa hedge along road, 30.V.1982, all leg. S. Golovatch.

Descriptive notes. Length ca 11 – 12 mm, width of midbody metazonae 1.2 – 1.25 mm (male, female), metazonite to prozonite width ratio <1.7 ( Fig. 3A, 3H – 3JView FIGURE 3). Live coloration usually uniformly light brown, not reddish, about same as in alcohol ( Fig. 3AView FIGURE 3).

All characters as in P. abchasius  ( Figs 3A, 3H – 3JView FIGURE 3, 4C, 4DView FIGURE 4), except as follows. Collum clearly narrower than head ( Fig. 3A, 3HView FIGURE 3). Paraterga not upturned, subhorizontal, mostly acute-angled and drawn behind rear tergal margin starting with segment 14 or 15 ( Fig. 3A, 3H – 3JView FIGURE 3). Gonopod ( Fig. 4C – 4DView FIGURE 4) with a shorter endomere rod and a less heavily spinulate exomere tip.

Remarks. Although the original description was clearly based only on the male ( Lohmander, 1936), the type series, “ Typen ”, actually consists of two specimens (male and female) which are to be considered as syntypes. To secure that the species is based on male material, the male is designated herewith as lectotype, the female as paralectotype.
