The milliped genus Oriulus Chamberlin is composed of one anatomically uniform species for which venustus Wood, 1864, is the oldest available name. The species has the greatest distribution of any known North American diplopod, covering three-fourths of the continental United States and adjacent southern Canada. The following binomials are placed in synonymy under O. venustus, all constituting new synonymies: Parajulus rugosus Bollman; O. medianus, O. delus, O. eutypus, O. notus, and O. georgicolens, all authored by Chamberlin; O. grayi Causey; and O. grandiceps Loomis. A neotype is designated for Iulus venustus from West Frankfort, Franklin County, Illinois.

Chez les millipèdes, le genre Oriulus Chamberlin contient une seule espèce, d'anatomie uniforme, pour laquelle le nom venustus Wood, 1864 est le plus ancien. Parmi les diplopodes nord-américains, c'est l'espèce qui a la répartition la plus étendue, recouvrant les trois-quarts des États-Unis et toute la partie adjacente du sud du Canada. Les binômes suivants deviennent de nouveaux synonymes d'O. venustus: Parajulus rugosus Bollman; O. medianus, O. delus, O. eutypus, O. notus et O. georgicolens, toutes de Chamberlin; O. grayi Causey et O. grandiceps Loomis. Un néotype est désigné pour représenter Iulus venustus; il provient de West Frankfort, comté de Franklin, Illinois.[Traduit par la Rédaction]
