Description

Seen not far from the road to the lighthouse amid Bishop pine needle litter. I found this creature nested cozily under a rock, and then, of course, restored his home. This guy was about ten cm long, if uncoiled.

Description from Wikipedia

Millipedes are myriapods of the class Diplopoda that have two pairs of legs on most body segments. Each double-legged segment is a result of two single segments fused together as one (the name "Diplopoda" comes from the Greek words διπλοῦς (diplous), "double" and ποδός (podos), "foot"). Most millipedes have very elongated cylindrical or flattened bodies with more than 20 segments, while pill millipedes are shorter and can roll into a ball, like a pillbug.
