I got three new millipedes today. Can someone ID these?





edit: I don't think these are Narceus americanus (or any type of Spirobolid), their head structure is not right for that order.

Nope, don't look anything like N. Americanus. But based on the pic, can't really tell what they could be. What color are they? And how big?

ID Millis

HEllo,
If they are not locals species, they seem to be the Olive green millipede from Africa.

Well I just got an email from the supplier, and they said these millies are Texicolus sp. Though I can't find any info on them.

Kasha- they are about 3-4 inches long, their coloration is slate gray/greenish with reddish gold rings around the segments.

Try looking up Orthoporus texicolens. If they are from Texas there's a chance that's the correct ID.
