got these 5 from a seller in Germany, going in my enclosure which houses 2 A.gigas currently, lets hope everything lets along.

Although I thought it had no ID, the box obviously states a name, though it brings up no results, I've emailed them for confirmation, it has no species name on their pricelist, basically just translated to something like "like the other big green millipede, but this one has been measured at 32cm".

Anyway it was very active as soon as I removed it, has a much firmer grip then my A.gigas, it is 9" long.







Now we have Pelmatojulus insignis, a very nice bright red banding...







Chocolate millipede..Ophistreptus guinensis





Finally Spirostreptus ibanda, this one is small right now, skinny and probably only 7cm, the Sun came out so I actually got the clearest macro pics, not bad for one handed while trying to stop it falling off as it had no grip unlike the other bigger ones.

oh totally didn't think of aureostriata! haha, well I've emailed them to ask, but the stock list just had a long germane description, no proper common name nor scientific one.

The larger millipedes always seem more confident, this un ID's green one is wondering about on the surface with my A.gigas, the others have gone underground. It's funny when millipedes bump into each other, a split second of curling a little in shock..then I think they realise it's another detrivore/creature like them, maybe because of how it's legs feel, so they put up with it walking over their back and get on with their business :laugh:
