This recently discovered millipede is very similar in appearence to Ophyiulus pilosus, but much larger in size. It could be confused with other species that have a pointed projecting telson, such as Julus scandinavius, Haplopodoiulus spathifer or even Tachypodoiulus niger, but the male's sickle shaped first pair of legs is characteristic of Ophyiulus spp.
Distribution and Habitat
A male and female were collected from a Local Wildlife Site in Oxford city. Additional specimens were collected in spring 2016.
