My ethmostigmus rubripes eats at about 12:00 pm on Wednesday each week.
My one makes my neighbours recoil and my sister and her friends scream (she has arachnophobia)!
Did you buy that centipede or did you catch it? My one which is identical to yours but smaller, was caught by me in the woodpile near the garbage bins. Our woodpile harbours those centipedes, particularly in spring to autumn!
A cephalic plate is the exoskeleton on top of the head, which all pedes have. In genus Ethmostigmus, it doesn't overlap with the first tergite (segment plate).
Yeah I’m pretty sure my centipede has got one.
All centipedes have one.
Thanks, I’ve just learned another thing about centipedes! But yeah there is a lot of things about centipedes that I have still to learn. I’ve also looked at the head of my centipede and the head of a cormocephalus (I believe you have one of those) and what I discovered was the head of Ethmostigmus rubripes has more of a curve to the neck/head joint whereas in cormocephalus the head appears to be part of the neck as though the centipede’s head was growing out of the neck! Am I right???
My pede and my spider eat at around midday or in the late afternoon or evening, depending on work of course.
