A new species of polydesmidan millipede of the family Euryuridae, Euryurus lecythanoictes, is described. Another millipede of Euryuridae, Illiniurus beattyi Shear, is considered to be an aberrant specimen and therefore not a true species. The family taxonomic history of Euryuridae is briefly covered with a discussion of gonopod anatomy.
