Sexual size dimorphism and corroboration of Rensch’s rule in Chersastus millipedes (Diplopoda: Pachybolidae)

Mark Ian Cooper

Sexual Size Dimorphism (SSD) was investigated in the millipede genus Chersastus. Mass, length and width were used to compare intraspecific variation in four species. Interspecific variation in volume was calculated in 18 species and an allometric coefficient of 0.85 found, which corroborates Rensch’s rule in this genus.
