      This is an unusual millipede as it is flat rather than the usual round bodied ones. It grows to between 6 - 9 cm long. Temperature should be 22 - 25 C and humidity should be 65 - 70%. This species is mainly active on the surface and like other millipedes eats its substrate so should always have a plentiful supply of rotten white wood and dead leaves. Substrate should be at least 10 cm deep for this species. They also eat lichens. Soft fruit and vegetables are largely ignored by this species. Please note that these millipedes can secrete cyanide so they need to be kept well ventilated. We do not recommend keeping these with other species
