Myriapoda is not german language (deutsch).
It's the international scientific desigantion of a group/class/subphylum of Arthropods.

Besides that incorrection, Myriapoda includes also Centipedes and not only Milipedes.
In fact, if we want to be precise, according to wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myriapoda) Myriapoda includes:
Centipedes
Millipedes
Symphyla
Pauropoda
Arthropleuridea

Thank you for your attention

Do you mean Myriapoda is not on on our site in Deutsch? We have a variety of synonyms for Myriapoda that are definitely in Deutsch.

I'm having a similar issue. When I add the latin term Marasmius to a file (my KW entry default is British English) I'm asked if I want to disambiguate that to Oyster mushroom. I don't want to, as that's just one sort of mushroom from the Marasmius genus, so I leave it undisambiguated. As soon as the file is uploaded, Marasmius is changed to (Deutsch) and oyster mushroom is ticked. I am unable to change this, it's not a German term, I didn't enter it in German and it shouldn't keep defaulting to oyster mushroom. I think it's perhaps something to do with latin terms being incorrectly mapped to German?

It's not a Latin mapping to Deutsch thing. If a synonym is only available in one language, that term will automatically default to that language regardless of your location.

I mean: Myriapoda is not a deutsch word (it shows in CV as deutsch)
As pointed here for another term, it is latin, but it is used most exclusively as a scientific name of a group of animal, and in that sense it's an "international" word. You probably don't have an "international" language on CV, and probably neither you have a latin one (I mean old latin, not latin related).
In this particular case I might suggest you'd add a scientific language/idiom? You'd have plenty to go arround and might fix a lot of ambigousity... is there such a word?

Myriapoda will need to be moved but in the meantime use the other terms already available to describe your content.
