    I found this little guy on a plant that I bought today, and I have no idea what species this is, my first thought was that it's some kind of lithobius. What do you guys think? 52445507_1961024177337056_3060784322958065664_n.jpg 51918273_1105510972962723_3177285328041934848_n.jpg

    Yup. Definitely a Lithobius sp.

    15 pairs of legs, so it's one of the Lithobiomorpha. I'm not sure how to differentiate between the various genera of stone centipedes, though. Lithobius does seem to be a pretty common one, but there are quite a few similar-looking relations.
