  2. There was that sc. sub fulgurans paper floating around, maybe it could help with the ID?

    If I see well it has olny 5 bold antennomers, so it couldn't be a S. subspinipes.
    I can't see spiracles, could you make a makro-pic of a spiracle?
    I'm just guessing, but I think it could be a (Par)Otostgiums specie.

    Scolopendra alternans ?

    The spiracles looks triangular, so Scolopendra genus.

    What is the distribution of alternans? I think this pede comes from Argentina.

    triangular shaped spiracles don't mean directly genus Scolopendra :shame:
    Argentina is a bit far away for Sc.alternans,... :eek:
    what makes you think it's from Argentina ?
    and what size is it ?

    Nice to know that! So, we have more difficult to Id pedes yet!:eek:

    That pede is not mine; In a spanish forum this pede appears 2 times, ( That pictures are from a partner of that) so we can't Id that, and I decided to write here. At last one of thet partner, comes from argentina and she is prety sure it is will caught in their country. In other hand, I'll do an euxastive reserch about this pede.

    I don't know what size it is...yet! So I have to make many questions.

    Cheers

    i also remember that topic since i started it :rolleyes: :D
    R.Shelley said it did remind him of a representative of (Par)otostigmus IF the spiracles where rounded,... but if they are triangular like Carles tells us,.. it has to be something else,...

    I bought 12 plings of an unknown Argentina spec. and i'm raising 10 of them,
    and now that i think of it, the pictures of the mother look kinda like your picture :razz:

    Does the headplate overlaps the T1 ?
    I can't see it clearly...
    For example on this picture it looks almost like Ethmostigmus sp.{D
    But on other photos... damn i don't know :?
