In this paper, I check for correlations between the sex ratio for males and females and humidity in red millipedes Centrobolus Cook, 1897. I found correlations between sex ratio and humidity (r=-0.68, Z score=-1.87, n=8, p=0.03) (y = -2.93x + 77.1). Differences of +1% humidity contributed to differences in the sex ratio. The increase in the magnitude of this factor resulted in a female-biased sex ratio.
