Description

Spirostreptus sp. #1 is a round millipede that coils itself three dimensionally. This configuration is referred to as “globular” in contrast to the more familiar disc-shaped coilers. This species has been in the US hobby for many years, but is rarely mentioned or offered. It seems to grow to about 6 inches though one German website lists them as reaching 8 inches.

Coloration for these captive-bred specimens is pale green and orange creamsicle bands.

Here is a link to Google’s Photostream of the species. Keep in mind that not all the images shown at the link are necessarily the correct species.

Specimens are well started at around 2 inches in length.

Millipedes require a substrate of mixed organic matter (see related products, below).
