Abstract

Previous published records of the hexapod order Diplura from Louisiana have documented one species. We provide collection data for seven species of Japygoidea: five within Japygidae and two within Parajapygidae. Two genera and four species of Louisiana Japygidae are undescribed. Members of Japygidae are saprophagous and predatory in feeding behavior. Cerci were not used during any observations of prey capture, but were employed defensively as pincers.
