Archiboreoiulus pallidus (Brade-Birks, 1920)
Most Millipedes and Centipedes are extremely difficult to identify to species level and Archiboreoiulus pallidus is no exception, being almost visually identical to Boreoiulus tenuis. In Nottinghamshire, Archiboreoiulus pallidus is found at several sites along the Trent Valley, with a number of records from the Bingham area in the late 1960's. The one illustrated below, was found and photographed by Tim Sexton and our thanks go to Tim, for allowing us to use his photograph.
