They are probably Julids, but beyond that, I have no clue. Many of the Julids are very similar looking and can only be identified via genital dissection, so it can be very hard to get an ID on them.

When you said success finally I thought it was someone who finally bred a certain myriapod species. I looked to see what species it was and if it was something special. Did you mean success collecting and did you have a difficult time finding julids when collecting in the past? What makes these guys such a success?
As hisserdude said it is not easy to identify julids even to the genus. An expert with specimens in hand wouldn't even try dissecting genitalia without collection information (state, county).

@Elytra and Antenna no they are not super special and yes collecting them been looking all summer and I'm sorry if you were confused by what I said but I've looked long and hard for them and am hoping to breed them I finally have a group of them and I thought that it was prity simple to understand from the original post that I collected them to breed meaning the collecting of 7 individuals being the success

Congrats. What kind of places did you look? What state are you in? What do you attribute your eventual success in finding them?

I work a a saw mill I looked around our waist wood pile and surrounding area I'm In Nebraska a I believe that the hot hot dry summer weather was my problem but we had a stretch of cooler weter weather that I believe made the difference

Probably right. I've seen fewer millipedes and carabid beetles this relatively hot dry year than last year, when there was abundant spring rain.

Congrats on finding the millipedes and good luck with breeding them! :) I don't think there are many millipede species in Nebraska -- not like the coast and Appalachian areas. I think these millipedes are most likely a species of Blaniulus (if the spots are red) or Cylindroiulus but I could be mistaken; there are many julids now widespread.
