I'm planning on getting a second/bigger enclosure for them so I can get some new ones, hopefully a couple of males too. I want little green babies...

Polyped.de has some species called Spirostreptus sp. "Nigeria green", but no pictures... I mean, I couldn't order anyway, but sounds interesting.


A larger enclosure is always good. I do not think they can have too much space/depth. Good luck finding some males!

Polyped.de has a very cool list! Those Spiro "Nigeria" sound interesting. I can not order from them either. But I have a friend in Germany.... :devil: I may also have him look into the Spirostreptus servatius as well. But I do not expect them to still have such in stock by April. To cold to ship before then.

Outstanding photos, as always!!

What species is that green striped millipede? At first I thought it was Telodeinopus aoutii but it does not show the striped legs.

Looks like you have had very good luck with those Centro bolus sp.! Mine did manage to reproduce... once. But I only ended up with about 10 babies. Are they eating fish food?

Thanks!

It's Spirostreptus gregorius. I meant to write the species, but forgot...

Yep, my C. splendidus are very prolific, I just hope I can sell most of the babies :D Yes, it's fish food.

Let me know if you have some Centrobolus sp. available in April. I certainly would want some! Not to worry about shipping though. You would only need to send them to a friend in Germany.

Sorry, I haven't been here for a while.

Where did you get the "Cameroon fat black"? It looks a lot like Mardonius p. Acuticonus with the 2 tone segments. Does it have a telson spike?

Sorry to hear you are down to 1 last pill millipede. Mine all died with in a month. I don't think I will try pills again any time soon.

Congratulations on the Ivories! They reproduce in large numbers when conditions are good.

The "fat black" is from BugzUK. It doesn't really look like M. p. acuticonus, it's too thick and it's head is different. It looks more similar to Epibolus pulchripes.

I had two pill millipedes for a pretty long time, I'm not sure which one that last pill is. I've had it for either a little over a year or over 1,5 years. I have decided to try again, knowing that at least I'm able to keep them alive and well if they survive shipping stress. It would be so great to breed them...

Thanks, it's one of my favorite species.

The more I look at your photos, the more I agree with you. The Fat Black does look very similar to Epibolus pulchripes. Maybe it is in the same genus, but a different species?

I did take a look at the species list on the Bugzuk site. They have several interesting specimens listed. I wish they gave more information though. Most are given names that are based on where they came from and color. Wish they listed size as well.

Maybe, although it's supposed to be from Cameroon and Epibolus species come from Kenya and Tanzania (E. pulchripes), Somalia (E. bravensis) and Mozambique (E. mossambicense). But it does look a lot like Epibolus.

I agree, it would be great if they gave more information.
