Just got a trio of these from south coast exotics and they're really sweet. Their stock list just said unknown species from ghana.

So Far I've ruled out ghana banded millipedes as they have quite slim necks, especially the male which normally has a chunky head with the ghana banded ones. They're not chocolate millipedes as they are lighter, slimmer and have distinct ridges to the segments wheras the chocolate are normally fairly smooth. I don't think they're olive millipedes as they're a different colour and too big. (The longest is 16 cm)

I'm thinking they could be spirostreptus hamatus

They seem pretty tame and have not inked me at all and they have big black eyes so they look like they're wearing shades which makes them look like cool dudes :-)

Any ideas please?

Sorry for the giant pics, didn't know how to reduce them

Found them now, managed to identify them by trying to find out why the male was acting strange and bending his head backwards. turned out it was a courtship thing :-)
