Scott Frazier - Oh dear, was that comment really made two months ago? So sorry for how long it's taken me to get back to you. I really appreciate the professional insight, and I'll update this spotting to reflect it. :)

I would say yours is not a cherry millipede based on the shape of the yellow on the outer edges (yours is say, hockey stick shaped, see suggestion). Compare the delta shape of the cherry millipede here
