[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These animals belong to Diplopoda group of Arthropoda.
They were forming small clusters in large cave near Tarsus (Mersin). Probably they fed on bat guano and others animal remains.
When I posted it, I wrote mistakenly "çiyanlar" as Turkish vernacular name. Since çiyan mean centriped group (Chilopoda) and my teacher dear Professor Mehmet K. ATATÜR warned me about title, I have just changed the title as kırkayaklar, which means milliped group (Diploda) in Turkish. So I wish to thanks Dr. ATATÜR for their valuble comments.
I hope you will be pleasure this photograph.

Çıyanlar çok ilginç olmuş. Bunlardan be şekilde bir kaç tanesi bir arada görmemiştim hiç. Eline sağlık.

A good photo, but the Turkish name "ciyanlar" is wrong, these diplopodans (millipedes) are known as "kirkayaklar" (plu) in Turkish.
