I just received it and already eaten in the unboxing container. I then put it in an enclosure I already set up. How do I identify its sex?

It’s a A. Grandidieri and not multicostis. Sexing out a centipede it’s a tricky shot if you haven’t got experience unfortunately

Oh it was sold as a multicostis. Can I keep this grandidieri communally?

The seller insist it's a grandidieri. I bought it from bugzuk
Yes and he’s right that is a Grandidieri.
I bet it’s around 4” at the most. The colour and the ridges on the segments says it all. Multicostis are bigger, around 5/6” and they have banded segments

It’s quite strange that someone like Martin (bugsuk) with tons of experience is mislabelling this pede.
