Arthropod of the Moment

My references say this is an example of Apheloria virginiensis, which would make sense since I found him in West Virginia last month.  I coaxed him onto my sleeping bag pad for a little better contrast.  I wasn't a bit afraid of him, as long as I had a camera between me and him.

If you don't know, he's a millipede, not a centipede or a caterpillar.
