Hello again
Hello again, I have not been able to find the paper I had read when labeling my photos(years ago). I did however find some info on rosenbergi and it seems to be a much larger species obtaining five inches! rosenbergi also has a black-on-white look to it. Not the species introduced to florida, sorry for the rash ID. I'll be reading all I can on the genus. I can't stand not knowing what this thig is.

I didn't move it
but I frequently do move things out of ID Requested and place them where a specialist is more likely to see them. It's my impression that most regular users don't bother with ID Requested since they identify anything they can wherever it is and they'll see those images by going through the Recent section anyway. I haven't bothered with ID requested for a couple years at least and would only do so if I had something I thought *might not be* an arthropod.

seems to be two schools when it comes to ID request. Some like you, and others who think images should be there at least a month before being moved to a general page if not IDed to genus or species during that period.

This is rosenbergi from Jamac
This is rosenbergi from Jamaca introduced to Florida about ten years ago. Jake

Hi Jake,
It sounds like you know way more about millipedes than I do but I would like to ask you to detail how you know, either by specific traits of this specimen, book or Web references, or relating your training and/or experience that leads you to this determination. The best place to state qualifications or background is on your personal page, reachable by clicking on your name under your post, because that's the first place anyone will look to gauge the reliability of an offered ID. You may be a world authority on millipedes but we wouldn't have any way of knowing that from this post.
