The term Myriapoda was previously used as the name for the group of arthropods containing the centipedes and millipedes. Myriapoda is an old term as taxonomists now separate the centipedes and millipedes into two separate groups:
- Chilopoda - Centipedes
- Diplopoda - Millipedes
The term Myriapoda should not be used.
