The only native millipeds like this that occur in the area of Desert Hot Springs are representatives of the family Atopetholidae (order Spirobolida).However, I can't see what I need to see to determine if they are indeed atopetholids. They could also be introduced, as suggested by the great size of the population. Rowland Shelley
