In published keys (e.g. Blower, 1985) this newly discovered millpede is likely to key out as Nanogona polydesmoides due to its well-developed paranota, but differs in its much smaller size and long stout body setae. In the field it may be confused with Craspedosoma rawlinsii.
A full description of this species is given in Telfer, Gregory, Kime, Owen & Spelda (2015).
