Family Euryuridae
2 genera, ca. 11 spp.
"They are one of the few millipeds with a precise habitat; I always find euryurids in association with decaying hardwood/deciduous logs or stumps (rarely pine) near water sources like streams, creeks, seepages. If no water nearby, then no euryurids. They occur from the Mississippi Valley to the Atlantic Coast and from midway up Ohio, Indiana, & Illinois to the Gulf Coast and northern peninsular Florida. Only 2 genera, Auturus & Euryurus, and ca. 8-10 species." -- Rowland Shelley
