Soft Millipede - Polyxenus lagurus

Soft Millipede - Polyxenus lagurus
Thompson Falls, Sanders County, Montana, USA
July 10, 2006
Size: around 2 mm
I finally found some of these in an old picnic table that I was refinishing.

Moved from Polyxenidae.

I'm not sure of the species way out west in Montana, but I think it is again Polyxenus lagurus (L., 1758).

Congratulations, Lynette!
I missed seeing these when they came in. I just found a huge bunch of these yesterday and am dedicating their image series to you :-)
