Greenhouse Millipede Oxidus gracilis Non-native

Status:

Originally from Asia, the Greenhouse Millipede has colonized every continent via human assistance. It is expected throughout Maryland and North America.

Description:

"In our area, pretty much any millipede with transverse grooves on each segment will be in the Family Paradoxosomatidae. Unless you are in one of the Gulf Coast states or California, the only option will be a Greenhouse Millipede, Oxidus gracilis." (J. Brown/BugGuide)

There are 13 records in the project database.
