African Invertebrates
African Invertebrates is an international peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers the taxonomy, systematics, biogeography, biology, ecology, conservation and palaeontology of Afrotropical invertebrates, whether terrestrial, freshwater or marine. African Invertebrates started in 1906 as the Annals of the Natal Government Museum that changed its name later to the Annals of the Natal Museum. The journal has a continuous history of more than 100 years, with over 800 natural history articles and more than 5,000 nomenclatural acts published.

A wide range of natural science topics has been covered in the Annals of the Natal Museum and subsequently in African Invertebrates. Besides taxonomy and systematics of various animal groups, papers dealing with embryology, histology, medical and agricultural entomology, terrestrial and marine ecology, botany, geography, palaeontology, general geology, with special reference to petrography and stratigraphy, and nature conservation have been published. The coverage of animal taxa is broad and includes, but not restricted to, insects.

Potential authors are encouraged to make use of extensive collections of the Natal Museum and other South African museums, and to deposit holotypes (paratypes) and voucher specimens in recognized South African institutions. African Invertebrates is currently published twice a year and accepts large revisionary works, as well as smaller contributions. All contributions are published in English, although authors may submit a translation of the abstract into any language that uses Latin characters. Currently, authors are not charged page fees.

Visit the journal's Web site (http://www.africaninvertebrates.org.za) for further information about submissions, orders, and exchange agreements.

2008 subscription (issues 1&2) - ZAR320 (ca. 30 Euro) + p&p.

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra

it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

14.11.17 09:22
All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.
