Descriptions are given of the developmental stages of Neotenogynium malkini n.g., n.sp., an associate of spirostreptid millipedes. The developmental chaetotaxy is described. A new family, Neotenogyniidae, is erected for this species. Many paedomorphic features of the species are interpreted as neotenic character states. The relationship of Neotenogyniidae to the other families within the Celaenopsoidea is discussed.
