Abstract
The pantropical millipede species Cylindrodesmus laniger Schubart, 1945 has been found introduced to hothouses in three European capitals, i.e. Paris, Vienna, and Berlin. In addition, there is strong evidence of its presence in the British Isles. These records appear to represent a species new to the European fauna. Furthermore, based on a strongly reduced receptaculum seminis in the vulva of C. laniger in European populations, the species can be reconfirmed as largely, if not always, parthenogenetic
