Proteroiulus fuscus (Am Stein, 1857)
A common Millipede, usually found under logs or loose bark in wooded areas. There are several similar species, so identification is difficult. Numbers of this Millipede were found at Sherwood Forest CP in late December 2012, but it is generally to be expected at many wooded sites.
