Body size: The body size has been regarded as of little taxonomic use due to the contraction capacity of Onychophora. Thus, it is difficult to obtain a precise measurement of body length, mainly after fixation, when several degrees of contraction may occur (Read 1988a).
The African distribution of peripatopsid Onychophora is similarly confined to this region, and they are also absent from India-Madagascar and south-east Asia, but unlike rhytidids and sphaerotheriids, the peripatopsids also occur in South America.
