Advertisement Thank you! As far as I know, most Polydesmida take a year or less to mature. It is the larger round millipedes that take years to mature. Even Tylobolus mature in less than two years. I never dig for eggs, especially when I suspect they might be there, as I fear I would only risk killing them, so better to my mind to wait and watch for pedelings. From photos others have shared, it looks like most (all?) Polydesmida lay their eggs in clusters in the substrate, not in a chamber nor individual capsules (I could be wrong but I think the latter is unique to the large round millipedes). Auturus evides egg cluster Motyxia egg cluster And thank you! I hope to do even better with the next generation! I agree, it would be fascinating to be able to observe Brachycybe brooding behavior! I wonder if they are unique in not laying their eggs either underground nor in capsules so that they require protection? Congratulations on getting offspring! This species has proven challenging for me, but I have had several for a year now and I plan to get several more along with more native food source this fall. What do you feed your Brachycybe, btw? And good luck with the Sigmoria! They are such beautiful millipedes -- I hope we both get offspring!
