Is this Species Asiomorpha coarctata or just the greenhouse millipede?

Moved from Paradoxosomatidae.

Greenhouse Millipede
I believe it is the more common Greenhouse Millipede, although it would be nice to find something else sometimes.
The mid-body paranota seem too blunt for Asiomorpha, and I believe Virginia is too far North of its establshed (but growing) range.

I agree it's the greenhouse millipede. Asiomorpha apparently only occurs in the states bordering the Gulf of Mexico.
