Hi, Bugguide

I found this species hiding under leaf litter in a healthy douglas fir/big-leaf maple forest with sword fern and oregon grape undergrowth. The millipede was curled up when I found it, but eventually it uncoiled and crawled down into the dirt. I saw some species that look close to this millipede in the guide (, and they were identified as Blaniulus guttulatus. Do any of you have an idea about what this little fellow might be?

Thanks for your help,
