Trigoniulus corallinus, sometimes called the rusty millipede, is a species of millipede native to the area around Thailand and Myanmar. It is also found in North America, as an introduced species. These millipedes inhabit moist areas, rotten wood and compost.[1] The genome of T. corallinus was sequenced in 2015, the first time this has been done for a millipede.[2]
