    I thought this might be of interest of some of you. It is the entire set of references generated by one of the scientific search engines when i use the search term "Scolopendra". Some of the papers are available free online, use google scholar to try and find them. Otherwise the rest can usually be ordered in you local library (at least you can in the UK, i'm not sure about other countries), or the British Library for a cost.

    if you go to http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=PubMed

    you can get a free account and get access to these three free full text articles if you search for scolopendra (reviews to follow article headers)

    incidentily, you have to click through to other host sites. i think it has to do with references and being like, legit documents. the free full text is there, tho

    1) ROUGH read. HIGHLY technical. Don't bother unless you are CodeMonkey level

    2)Good read. Low to Midlevel med speak, but if you are serious those are all basic terms you should know and learn. Very slightly rough translation of original spanish (er, or portuguese...), not a problem though. Best of the lot, to my tastes

    3) Big 11 page pdf. Too high level for my brain. Walking study using myographs and lots of math. Biological reference, physics, and general knowledge level required to grok this are all high. Big Meaty Article though.

    medical report on bite by Scolopendra spp. or Otostigmus spp. on 60yo man in (Turkey?)
    ah, this is interesting because there is apparent systemic effect on the mans heart. the medspeak is medium. slightly too thick for me to figure out exactly what the possible effects of the venom on the man's heart could be.

    ooh, coronary vasospasm = heart vessel spasm... that doesn't sound good.
    bradycardia= ?
    acute ischemic process = ?

    there is a link to a BAD quality pic of the dead centi that bit the man
    and EEG or ECG or some kind of grams.

    after the specific case study on the man there is an interesting and more digestable like, summary of the state of centipede envenomation in medical science, which might make this article note worthy to some :)

    edit:

    oooh, i was in mayoclinic.com looking something up for my accident prone brother and came across something called an Tansient Ischemic Attack. it's uh, interesting to say the least :)
    spread some Mayo please

    heh, oops. that's leads to either taiwanese or trad. chinese. no use to me, but perhaps one of our friends who speaks (and recognizes the language) could review it :)

    it tricked me cuz the abstract was in english

    HOLD THE PHONE!

    i downloaded the full text, hoping for pics... the first page is in, er, that other language... but there is ENGLISH TEXT!

    IT IS A FREE CENTIPEDE BOOK!!!! I had to download a 7.7MB language module for adobe reader, but good grief, it looks to be worth it!

    WAY too much info to read it all here... if you have a broadband i would suggest checking it out.

    Title:
    Revision on Scolopendromorpha (Chilopoda) from Taiwan

    106 page pdf, not sure of filesize, but BIG


    RAndolph... i *think* you might be interested in this... :)
    KEYS!!!
    Key to Four centi Orders in Taiwan
    Keys to Genera of Scolopendra order
    Keys to species of genus Scolopendra!

    Descriptions of all Taiwan Scolopendra spp.
    Descriptions of all Taiwan Otostigmus spp.

    Keys to T spp of Rhysida

    Keys & Desc. Taiwan Cryptops

    K&D to T Scolopocryptops

    basically keys and species descriptions to all Scolopendramorphae in Taiwan!

    this paper is AWESOME!!!

    OMG! there are pictures!

    YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THIS PAPER! IT IS A FREE CENTIPEDE BOOK!
    IT DETAILS PHYSIOLOGY, EVERYTHING!

    EDIT:
    ah nuts, Randolph has just informed me it is sort of outdated. There is still a lot of good basic info though, but maybe the species accounts aren't quite 100% modern and correct

    cool paper that seems to talk about a museum collection in Vienna

    545kb 71 page pdf. primarily in english, there is some, er, european in there

    no pics that i saw, but a lot of clear diagrams.

    these seems to contain a bunch of random descriptions of species. i'm not sure it's a key, so much as a description of various centipepdes.

    i want to compare Ethmostigmus trigonopodus description to my Tanzanian Blue-ringed... even though Vincent gave me the spiracles on segments 7+8 = Ethmostigmus, cuz no Scolopendra has spiracles on 7+8 short answer :)

    Tasmania centipedes (key, ref, etc) very good

    This isn't a paper, but it's got good info about Cryptops centipedes (specifically those of Tasmania, but good general info too)

    craters are the legendary FIFTH form of centipedes!
    (the "normal" four are Scutigeromorpha, Scolopendromorpha, Lithobiomorpha, and Geophilomorpha)

    i had written half Tasmania, and half Tanzania... and for some odd reason, went back and corrected all to Tanzan
