These large, orange-brown millipedes are found in sandy rainforest environments in South-east Queensland.  Housing should include a moist rain-forest-floor type of environment with organic matter mixed in with cocopeat, decomposing leaves and pulpy wood.

Juveniles often have a lighter tip to the tail and are a paler overall colour than the reddish-brown adults.

This species is very large and reaches 10 centimetres in length.

Millipedes feed on decomposing wood, leaves and other organic matter.

They will also eat a bit of vegetable such as carrots, sweet potato or pumpkin.
