ID by Dr Robert Mesibov.
Millipede species are hard to distinguish from one-another, and to identify to species usually requires a close look at the 'gonopods' of an adult male. These are modified legs used to transfer sperm to females, and are located about a third of the way back from the head on the underside of the body.
