Hello you all,
Here are some of millipedes that I take pictures. I know a few thing about tarantulas and scorpions... but almost nothing about then, I mean, about ID them. Can you help me? This are from the northwest of Brazil! (realy clost to the paradise, if you allow me to say :cool: )


This one with yellow stripes(12cm) its the most common here!
The red legs (8cm) its a little hard to find, also 'cose its the smaller! :wall:


This black and white ones (9cm) are smaller and thicker than the others here. One of them its finishing the molt.


This is incredible beautifull! :) This grafitt one (10cm) looks like its wearing a metal armor!


This yellow legs its great! Deep black with this beauty yellow on the legs! Its big... 21cm!!

Can anyone ID these guys?

Thanks a lot!

I hate to keep the banter going on this because its unfortunate for the original poster... but Maryland isn't a New England State, it doesn't even touch one and its no where near VT. :wall:

The ones on the first and second picture (black and white) looks like:
Tylobolus uncigerus
The one with the yellow legs are almost the same species as the Spirostreptidae spec. 3 (but this one has pinklegs) it's the same genus spirostreptidae spec. ?????
I had those and they are beatiful i can't find them any more.
If you sell them :)

The millipede species already mentioned have no distribution in Brazil.

The millipedes on the first pic and the black one with yellow legs belong to the order Spirostreptida and probably belong to the genus Orthoporus or Plusioporus which have a great distribution mainly through the middle and south of america.

The graffiti one and and black/white belong to the order Spirobolida, family Rhinocricidae. Maybe they belong to the genus Anadenobolus.

A more precise determination is only possible with the gonopods, the modified legs on segment 7th in males.
