Millipede at old growth, Pack Forest--Harpaphe haydeniana? - Harpaphe haydeniana

Millipede at old growth, Pack Forest--Harpaphe haydeniana? - Harpaphe haydeniana
Pack Forest, near Eatonville, Pierce County, Washington, USA
July 12, 2009
Size: 40 mm
Lateral view, also getting a better view of the mite hitchhiker. The droplet near the mite is a defensive secretion--I had been picking up the millipede and putting it onto open ground for photographs.
I think this is Harpaphe haydeniana.
