Milipedes are arthropods from the class Diplopoda, and I know almost nothing about them. To learn more about millipedes, and Polydesmida, here is a Link: http://www.polydesmida.info/polydesmida/ – Aldo took this shot on an outing with me but I wasn’t lucky enough to get a shot – Thanks to Kate Grigg who assisted with the ID.
