Neither A.t. or B.s. occurs anywhere remotedly close to where this millipede was seen. This is probably Apheloria virginiensis reducta or Pleuroloma flavipes, both of which occur in AR & MO. A. tigana occurs in central NC and B. stricta occurs in the southern Appa;achians generally south of the James River, plus there is an allopatric population in the Kings/Crowders Mtn. inselberg on the NC/SC borderr along I-85 S of Gastonia, NC.

I do not think it is Apheloria tigana, they usually have a few middorsal spots.

It does look similar to Boraria stricta, but seems a little far West of normal range.

I'll wait for Dr. Shelley or Derek to chime in.
