@5picklefamily. Thanks for the id suggestion.
The picture in the link that you provided looks quite similar.
Is there any distinctive characteristic of the rusty millipede that is also visible in the attached picture ? I have been looking around the internet without success for clear information to identify Millipedes

@terrynack. Thanks. I am positive that it is a Millipede. However it seems that millipede is a class name for about 10000 species. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millipede. I am hoping some expert can come out with a more accurate binomail name.
