Anadenobolus monilicornis Wikipedia
Individuals are dark brown with distinctive yellow bands, and measure 2.5–10 centimetres (1.0–3.9 in) long. The legs and antennae are red.
This species inhabits leaf litter. Birds and captive monkeys have been observed crushing these millipedes and rubbing their secretions on their wings or fur, probably to repel insects. This millipede will often crawl on an unwary person at night while sleeping. If it finds itself pressed up against the skin or crushed it will release a toxic irritant that will cause a dark chemical burn to the skin. These darkened areas may take more than 4 months to completely return to normal.
This species is native to the Caribbean: it is found in Brazil, Suriname, Guyana, and on Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Maarten, Martinique, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Haiti.
This species has been introduced to southern Florida, where it can occur in large numbers but is not considered a pest.
