I'm very familar with this centipede. From Tanzania, we have seen the following so far:
Tanz. red-head, Scolopendra cingulata spp.
Tanz. black-head, Scolopendra cingulata spp.
Tanz. tiger (same as red-head), Scolopendra cingulata spp.
Tanz. neon blue-legged, Scolopendra sp. (?)
Tanz. Giant blue-legged (stocky, grows to 8"+), Scolopendra sp. (?)
Red Feather-tail, Alipes sp.
Tanz. neon-blue (different, without the lateral black stripes), Scolopendra sp. (?)
Tanz. blue-ringed, Scolopendra mortisans
This "Tanz. red-head" is a sub-species or geographical color variant of S. cingulata.
S. cingulata looks very similar to our S. polymorpha of the American Southwest.
