There are around 56 species

There are around 56 species of millipede in the UK. I've never seen one like this before. I'm not sure which species it is, I tried to key it out from your excellent photo, but failed!

ID for millipede

56! No wonder I couldn't find a match. I noticed after posting pic that my beastie seems to have less 'waist' between segments than P complanatus illustrations I've found.
Thanks for that Jon, makes it more exciting.
