NO COMMON NAME (Holjapyx diversiunguis): SPECIES ACCOUNT

Diplurans are widely distributed throughout the world.

Diplurans live in the soil and are found in moist habitats under rocks, logs, leaf litter, and tree bark. Some species live in caves.

Diplurans eat both plant material and animal tissues. They feed on living and dead small, soft-bodied mites, worms, symphylans (sihm-FIE-luhns) other diplurans, and insects. They also eat funguses, living plants, and decaying vegetation.

A few diplurans cause minor damage to garden vegetables by eating them, but most species do not affect people in any way.

No species of diplurans is threatened or endangered.
