The ivory millipede ranges from the Carolinas south to the Florida Keys. Once split into two species (with spinigerus assigned to the namesake “ivory” toned strains and pilsbryi to the darker ones), all color forms are presently considered a single species (though this may change in the future). “Archbold” is a special locality collected along the railroad tracks leading to and through the famous Archbold Biological Station, smack dab on the biologically rich central Florida sand ridge. Adults possess the typical coloration associated with ivory millipedes: richly contrasting black and ivory striping.
