Dwelling in forested areas of the United States’ west coast and representing the northernmost member of its genus, the olive millipede is an excellent beginner species. They are tolerant of a wide range of temperatures and conditions, as long as rotting wood (or very high quality rotted leaves) is provided. A tankful of wood can last a small colony many years. This species is slower growing than other familiar millipedes such as ivories and southern lines of American giants, but is respectively long-lived. In excellent lighting the coloration of large immatures and adult females is eerily reminiscent of that of the giant green pill millipedes that many hobbyists have fawned over.
