A look at the millipedes, how they live and how to identify and record local species.

A look at the millipedes, how they live and how to identify and record local species. The millipedes (Diplopoda) are an easily overlooked group of animals because of their secretive lifestyles in soil or under bark. Because of this they are generally under-recorded and in recent years several new species of millipede (to Britain and to science) have been turning up, particularly nearby in South Wales. Therefore there is a lot of scope for making new discoveries and easily expanding knowledge of county distributions. There are over 60 species in Britain, so offer good variety, but without too daunting a challenge for the beginner.
