Blaniulidae
This very narrow millipede (about the width of a pencil lead) is juvenile of an introduced European species of the family Blaniulidae, which also has a native species in North America. With the red spots, representing the defensive glands, on each segment throughout most of the body, I believe this is Blaniulus guttulatus.

 
Thanks Rowland!
