Gosodesmus claremontus is a species of platydesmidan millipede, described by Ralph V. Chamberlin in 1922, that is widely distributed in the U.S. state of California. Individuals vary in color from bright pink to coral, and may possess a black or purple dorsal stripe. Body length ranges from 17 to 27 mm (0.67 to 1.06 in), with up to 81 body segments. Gosodesmus occurs on the Coast Ranges as well as the Sierra Nevada, and is often found within rotted wood, especially oaks.
