    I currently have both AGM and AGB millipedes but I'm struggling to tell the difference as they both arrived at the same time. Can anyone tell me the visual differences between the two in order to make a correct ID?

    You appear to be asking how to tell apart Archispirostreptus gigas from Archispirostreptus gigas.

    The way I read about (though there might be another way) was looking at the antennae......in A. gigas they are all dark and in Mardonius the last segment is a bit lighter....I've never had the opportunity to compare the species in hand yet so I'm not sure how much lighter they are exactly....someone else might know a better way

    A. gigas体是光滑的,M.parilis体相对粗糙,不反射光。
