Long Dead Worms Found in Florida Could be Millipedes

“I am finding these dead worms on the pavement and on the exterior wall of my home”, states this reader about the long, black, mangled-looking organism pictured below. “They range in size from 1/2” to 1 ½”. I live in southeast Florida. Thank you.” To start with, we want to thank him for the fantastic photo he provided: it really helps us identify the organism quicker. That said, since this worm looks so dried-out and mangled, we cannot identify this worm with 100% certainty, given the state of its body: we cannot assume that this is what it looked like when it was alive.
