ID Pls

I found this lil guy in my main communal tank. No idea where he came from
A little blurry but looks like Oxidus gracilis ("Greenhouse Millipede"). The transverse groove on the segments is a good diagnostic.
 
Interesting because I do have greenhouses in there but they look nothing like him. They came from a plant I bought at Home Depot lol
 
There’s variation in the species. Certainly looks like Paradoxosomatidae to me. Maybe one of the related asiomorpha from Florida? If it came in on a retail plant it could be from lots of places.
