ABSTRACT. A nomenclator of the genus-, family-, and ordinal-group names proposed in the class Diplopoda from 1 January 2000 until 31 December 2014 is compiled to encompass the last 15 years, following both the Nomenclator I [Jeekel, 1971], which covered the 200 years from the time of Linnaeus through 31 December 1957, and the Nomenclator II [Shelley et al., 2000], covering the period from 1 January 1958 until 31 December 1999. A number of inadvertent omissions from and corrections to the previous nomenclator are also introduced.
