Anamorphic development in a generalized millipede that reaches maturity in stage V

Anamorphosis or Anamorphogenesis refers to postembryonic development and moulting in Arthropoda that results in the addition of abdominal body segments, even after sexual maturity. An example of this occurs in proturans and millipedes.

Anamorphosis has been depicted various times throughout early modern literature[1]
