    Dimerogonus
    (genus)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Diplopoda: Spirostreptida: Cambalidae: Dimerogonus
    Bob Mesibov says

    Dimerogonus species are relatively short and stout, and the last few rings are pale-coloured. This one is probably D. orophilus, which was first described from the Blue Mountains.

    Bob Mesibov says

    On second thought, it looks a bit too large for D. orophilus (and a long way north of the type locality) - shame there's no scale in the images. Reiner, could you put a coin next to your specimens in future, in at least one of the series of images?
