First Sighting October 2016

The Illacme tobini is a species of blind siphonorhinid millipede indigenous to California and possibly Mexico. These tiny millipedes lack pigmentation and they possess oddly-designed mouthparts that suggest that they feed exclusively on fungi. Despite their small size, they have up to 414 legs, as well as 200 poison glands. Males possess four penii.
