Bristly millipede - Polyxenus

Bristly millipede - Polyxenus
Lacey (near Olympia), Thurston County, Washington, USA
March 13, 2009

Moved from Polyxenida.

Maybe P. pugetensis.
Hoffman's 1999 checklist includes mentions the range of Polexenus pugetensis as "Olympic Peninsula, Mason Co., Washington, and from Benton County, Oregon. British Columbia?" in addition to Seattle. But the widespread species Polyxenus lagurus is also known from Washington (without reference to region).
