hi Orin, yes ... a long time... about 10 years I think...Hi Peter, been a long time.
Is that from South America or the West Indies?
if you read this free article on Milipedes and Centipedes from Northeastern Peru by Chamberlin (Bulletin of the AMNH ; v. 78, article 7)
which you can find here
you can check if all the keys match,
as far as i can see all the anatomical features visible on the 2 pictures above matchScolopendra hermosa (Chamberlin, 1941).
I never knew that scolopendra was Spanish! I thought it was Latin like most scientific names of insects and their kin!
