3) OPINION

Initially, the section Progoneata was characterized by presence of genital opening in front, and included only Diplopoda and Pauropoda, while Symphyla were erroneously regarded having the genital opening posteriorly and were united with Chilopoda and Hexapoda in a section Opisthogoneata. Later, the same author corrected his mistake and wrote that attributing of Symphyla to Progoneata or placing them "between Progoneata and Opisthogoneata" is a subject for further discussions. As the initial non-attributing of Symphyla to Progoneata was connected not with a special opinion about classification, but with an evident mistake concerning structure of animals, the name Progoneata should be attributed to the taxon uniting Symphyla + Diplopoda + Pauropoda. The valid name for the  taxon uniting only Diplopoda + Pauropoda should be Collifera Boudreaux 1979.
