Identification
This millipede is a representative of the order Chordeumatida, and in Massachusetts, the only possibility for a smooth-bodied one like this is Underwoodia iuloides (Harger, 1872) (Chordeumatida: Caseyidae). (Dr Rowland Shelley)
Range
This species is parthenogenetic and occurs across the northern US & Canada to the Rocky Mountains (with an allopatric apparently sexual population in northeastern New Mexico!!). There is a second species west of the Rockies in Canada and the US that extends southward into the Wasatch Mts. of Utah, and a third species occurs in Far Eastern Russia. (Dr Rowland Shelley)
