Proteroiulus fuscus (Am Stein, 1857)
A common Millipede, but there are several similar species and identification is difficult from photographs, so photographs showing the arrangement of the ocelli are required. Proteroiulus fuscus can occur in good numbers at any site, but it is generally to be expected at woodland sites, where it is common either under bark or sometimes under logs etc. Common in Nottinghamshire.
