Craspedosoma rawlinsii - a flat-backed millipede

A millipede found in the woodland the other day has keyed out to the above species, which seems not unusual in the area and habitat (wet woodland). It has a ridged side, making it a "flat-backed millipede", and 28 ocelli in an equilateral triangle (that's 7 per side). It has been recorded on the reserve before, by GC in 1993, so it's been a while!
