Bristly millipede - Polyxenus

Slightly different coloring, but I think it's the same critter as:

Moved from Polyxenida.

Maybe P. pugetensis.
Hoffman's 1999 checklist includes mentions the range of Polexenus pugetensis as "Olympic Peninsula, Mason Co., Washington, and from Benton County, Oregon. British Columbia?" in addition to Seattle. But the widespread species Polyxenus lagurus is also known from Washington (without reference to region).
