Hello! Can anyone ID this little critter? It was sold as "Tanzanian striped yellow millipede".

Very hard to say. Can you post more photos?

It certainly is a good looking critter! I am always jeleous of you keepers in Europe. We do not get many millipede species over here in the USA.

It's a pretty little millipede, but I don't get to see it much, since it loves to stay hidden in the substrate, digging its tunnels. It's a good thing I have other, more active species too... :)

Looks like some species of Spirostreptidae. I know... not very helpful. but it is the best I can do. Maybe if I saw it in person... :devil:

Yep, Spirostreptidae is what I was thinking too. Thank you for your answer Hypoponera : ).

Have a close up of the eyes? It seems to have too few body segments for that order.

No, unfortunately I don't. I can try to take one at some point, but I'm not sure if the millipede is even alive anymore, since I haven't seen it in ages.
