Polyxenida. Under the bark of a huge Eucalyptus tree. Els Poblets, Alicante, Spain. First time I saw these guys. I'd seen pictures, so I knew immediately what they were. But I did not realize how tiny they are.

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.
