Millipede - Sigmoria latior

Millipede - Sigmoria latior
Pleasant Gardens, McDowell County, North Carolina, USA
August 10, 2010
Size: about 2 inches
Found under trash can, near rodent burrows (likely Voles)

Moved from Xystodesmidae.

Moved from Polydesmida.

Sigmoria latior munda Chamber
Sigmoria latior munda Chamberlin, 1939 is the most likely possibility for the area where it was found. Definitely not Apheloria virginiensis corrugata, which does not occur in NC. Rowland Shelley

Looks like the picture in this group of shots:
You may have to hunt for the photo. I entered Sigmoria latior munda into Google, and found it. The locality for the critter was about a mile from where I found it (near Lake Tahoma in McDowell County NC).

Moved from ID Request.

Possibly Apheloria virginiensis, but also possibly unidentifiable from this shot.
