Out of stock


This species of flat-backed (Polydesmid) millipede is found in leaf litter in SA’s Barossa valley. This species grows to 6-7cm long and doesn’t secrete smelly liquid when disturbed like most millipedes do. This species is a shiny light brown and curls into a spiral when disturbed.

An ideal captive environment is a coco-peat and vermiculite substrate mix with dried leaf litter, bark and pulpy wood on top, and then covered with moist coco peat. Add springtails to reduce mould.
