the first one is: Spirostreptus hamatus
the second one: Epibolus pulchripes (female)
the third one: it looks like a juvenile Spirostreptidae spec. 1

Millipedes ID

HEllo ALl,
Kim,
How come these one has pink legs instead of red leggs like the others Epibolus pulchripes that I have? see Attached pic

these are the red legged ones

This is one of the pink legs

Could it be possible that these are two different species with very Identical feathures????

Or is it that they are same specie different region???

Do you know of a good site to see Millipedes ID keys?

thanks

it's a juvenile female after she gets bigger and older her legs wil get more red.
The picture of the other Epibolus pulchripes those are 3 males and the males are always shinier (glossy) and the legs are more red.
The females are dull black with red legs.

Rgds,

Kim.
