Hello,
May I ask some help to identify this worm?
I don't know what is it and if it's harmful.
I see only a few by day, usually in the morning, but I don't know if they are nocturnal or not.
I grow daylilies.
Many thanks in advance!

It appears to have two pairs of legs per body segment which would make it a millipede rather than a centipede. I don't know which millipede it might be, but here are some pics:
