Aniulini is a tribe of parajulid millipedes. This tribe was first proposed in 1974 and included 7 genera. Since 2000, several studies have been published describing included species and expanding the tribe to include 15 genera. All occur in North America east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. At least 2 genera have been recorded in Minnesota.

 

     
           
 
Description
 
 

Much research has been published on species in this tribe since 2000. However, with one exception, none of the research found online includes a description of the tribe itself. The one exception describes features of the genitalia, features not visible except under a microscope. Thanks to v belov, Contributing Editor at BugGuide.net, for identifying the photos on this page.
