Discovery of genus Archipolydesmus in Algeria: description of three new species (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Polydesmidae)

The genus Archipolydesmus, until now known by five species from France, Spain and Morocco, is discovered for the first time in Algeria, in two national parks. Three new species are described: one of them in the National Park of Chrea (south of Algiers), and two in the National Park of Djurdjura (east of Algiers). A list of the Millipeds (twenty-five genera - fifty-one species) cited until today from Algeria is given, with their bibliographic references.
