I have looked everywhere but I can’t seem to identify this millipede. Can you help?
We quickly identified your Millipede as a North American Millipede, Narceus americanus-annularis-complex, thanks to images posted to BugGuide. According to BugGuide, it is: “Usually dark reddish-brown with red edges on each segment. The most commonly-seen large millipede in its range.” Our favorite bit of information on BugGuide is that this Millipede is commonly called an “Iron Worm.”
