Updated Onychophora checklist

Epiperipatus adenocryptus
Epiperipatus adenocryptus from Brazil
So far, 206 species of velvet worms have been described, of which 186 are valid species and 20 represent nomina dubia [1–7]. In addition to extant representatives, the record of unambiguous fossils includes four species with uncertain relationships to the extant taxa [8–11]. In the following, we provide an updated classification and a complete list of species of Onychophora, which is based on Oliveira et al. [1].
