For all other species of diplopods examined, a simple prismatic epithelium has been reported.
The epithelium consists of absorptive cells (principal cell or digestive cell), generative cells (regenerative cell) and secretory cells, similar to the ones described for other species of diplopods, such as Oxidus gracilis (Neumann, 1985 apud Hopkin and Read, 1992), Glomeris marginata (Martin and Kirkham, 1989), Plusiopurus setiger (Fontanetti and Camargo-Mathias, 1997), Rhinocricus padbergi (Fantazzini et al., 2002) and Polynexus lagurus, Archispirostreptus gigas and Julus scandinavius (Sosinka et al., 2014).

Diplopods and certain isopod species also responded to carbon and nutrient applications indicating that bottom-up forces are also important structuring forces for these groups.
In addition to their relative intolerance to low humidity, diplopods are very susceptible to various degrees of environmental changes, particularly climate, altitude and diet (Hopkin and Read, 1992).
