Tanzanian Pill Bug Millipede

Arthrosphaera brandtii


Small millipede (3-4 cm). The fading brown color suggests it was an old individual.


Tropical moist montane forest; crossing a gravel road.


Introduced species in Amani Nature Reserve. A small study performed by me and my colleagues showed there is no evidence as of yet to consider it an invading species.

No species ID suggestions

Ours is the last one :)
