Body mass variation was correlated with male and female length in the red millipede genus Centrobolus. Mass and length (r=0.86, Z score=2.87, n=8, p<0.01) in males (r=0.97, Z score=2.99, n=5, p<0.01) and females (r=0.96, Z score=2.72, n=5, p<0.01) were correlated. C. inscriptus females have the largest length (67.4 mm) and the highest mass (2.61 g) while C. digrammus has the shortest length (49.9 mm) and the lightest mass (0.68 g).
