Millipede - Chordeumatida - Cleidogona - female

Millipede - Chordeumatida - Cleidogona - Female
Washington County, Ohio, USA
October 12, 2011
Found in leaf litter. I'm pretty sure it's in one of these three families: Conotylidae, Cleidogonidae, or Caseyidae. I haven't found any gonopods, so I'm assuming it's female, and I'm having some trouble getting a good luck at the gnathochilarium to see if the mentum divides it. It has a nice pattern of brown and white, with a dorsal white stripe along its length.
