Eucarlia alluaudi (Brölemann)

Marianne Milliped (Eucarlia alluaudi)

The Marianne Milliped was described in 1896; it is only known from the damaged holotype that had been collected in 1892.

The species was apparently restricted to the small granite Marianne Island in the Seychelles Islands, a place that today is highly degraded; the milliped is now very likely extinct. [1]
