Striped Millipede - Ommatoiulus sabulosus?

As per the thread title. Unfortunately none of my books have anything much about millipedes; very poor of me I know; I need more books! This one is on sand dunes at Sandscale Haws in Cumbria, UK. There are usually lots of them here in spring.

A quick look on the Myriapod website strongly suggests that this is correct - seems to be the only species with this pattern and is common on sand-dunes.

Many thanks. That website is very helpful. I don't know why it didn't come up in my searches.
