PILL MILLIPEDE (Glomeris marginata): SPECIES ACCOUNTS
FLAT-BACKED MILLIPEDE (Polydesmus angustus): SPECIES ACCOUNTS

Most millipedes eat decaying leaves and other vegetation, but some will eat shoots and roots of living plants. A few species are known to feed on animal remains or funguses. Many species will also eat their own waste pellets. It is believed that they obtain nutrition from funguses growing inside the pellets rather than from the waste itself.

No millipedes are considered endangered or threatened.
