A flat-backed millipede (Parafontaria laminata)

A flat-backed millipede (Parafontaria laminata), about 2.5 cm long. Swarms of them occur every eight years in central Japan, so dense that they can cause train wheels to lose traction. They are beneficial in that they feed on soil and leaf litter, thus like earthworms helping decomposition and the cycling of soil nutrients. Nagano Prefecture, Japan

A wireworm (Iulus sp.) Featured Millipedes Print

A wireworm (Iulus sp.)

A wireworm (Iulus sp.), a millipede that can crawl only slowly but is capable of pushing strongly enough to force itself into the substrate. When running it uses only 12 or so of its legs but when pushing itself into soil it can use as many as fifty. It can spray a foul liquid from glands in each of its segments. New Caledonia
