Moved
Moved from Millipedes. Moved based on Rowland Shelley's comment below. Upon reading the species description on the BG Info page, I see that this species is associated with woodlands, so I wanted to note that this specimen was photographed in a sandy field, but a small woodlot was nearby.

Thanks to Dr. Shelley for the ID!

I think it is Pleuroloma flav
I think it is Pleuroloma flavipes Rafinesque, 1820 Rowland Shelley
