It has an interesting arthropod-ish look to it.

Yes Tim, thank you! I had the same hypothesis but posted without any assumption and now happy if we are right!

Very cool find!

I'd say Euproops is a fairly close match.

Have you found any of these before, Roman?

Wow. That Euproops just popped out at me as soon as I brought the image up. :) Congrats!

It looks like you may have part of its head as well:

Do you have the counterpart? It may be complete.

Head and tail, side by side:

Thank you Missourian! No unfortunately I haven't the counterpart... Interesting idea about HEAD :)

Yours is pretty flattened, but you may still be able to trace out the structures in the cephalon.

Also, it's possible more could turn up on some of your other pieces. Check for wrinkly things. :)

Thank you, I have already checked all other pieces, there is no any other Euproops but one has a not usual shape

Just one millipede showed up in a profusion of plant material. I'm sure I could easily dismiss it as a poorly preserved, partial seed cone. :)

Hi Chris, thank you! This example has to be interesting for Dr. Cleal even more then previous... :) I try to get a feedback from Russian enthomologists about this find. Regards, Roman
