Striped Millipede Ommatoiulus sabulosus
This is one of Britain’s largest millipedes, and it has to be one of it’s most attractive. Growing up to around 30 mm (1 3/16 in) long, it is very well marked and unmistakable with 2 conspicuous deep orange stripes running the entire length of the body. I discovered it under a detatched piece of bark in my local wood. It feeds on dead and decaying plant material, and can sometimes be found on tree trunks and walls, or under logs in a broad range of habitats including, woodland and meadows, with a preference for sandy soil.
Using the ‘classic’ Gutenberg ‘block’ to add images I have discovered that you can frame them, and you don’t get that landing page with the adverts either, so you should be able to double-click to zoom in without the added fuss.
