I'm an entomologist who helps people realize how much they love insects. I'm a Noah Ranger here, so let me know if you need anything.

That's a very pretty millipede, I haven't seen a photo of one with that color before, it looks quite distinct. Unfortunately, I can't glean too much ID info from the photo, but it's definitely in the order Polydesmida. If you find another, collect it if you can! I'd love to get my hands on a specimen to try to figure it out.
Unfortunately, no common name for this species, but a neat find! There are three species it could be, based on your location: C. annulata, C. minor, or C. ochra. It's impossible to tell which species it is just from the photo, so genus will have to do.
We can't be 100% certain about the species ID without seeing its gonopods (modified legs for sperm transfer on males), but based on the location it's probably A. tigana and we can safely say that it's Apheloria, so I agree with stho002.
