Moved
Moved from Rhinocricidae.

Likely Adadenobolus monilicornis
I'm not an expert by any means but I'm fairly certain this is the yellow-banded millipede.

They had completely overrun Hugh Taylor Birch State Park here in Fort Lauderdale the last time I was there. They were so numerous it was difficult to walk across the parking lot without stepping on one.

Moved
Moved from Millipedes. Left at family for now. The other introduced Florida millipedes were previously placed in a different genus.

This is the introduced Neotro
This is the introduced Neotropical milliped of the family Rhinocricidae, order Spirobolida that is now overrunning south Florida and, assisted by man, is spreading northward very rapidly. I have heard from colleagues of it climbing the walls of buildings in Naples. Not exactly sure of the species and there may be more than one, but it is probably Anadenobolus monilicornis (Porat).

These were numerous around the cottage I rented and would climb the outside walls at night. I plucked this one off of the wall.
