I recently picked up this centipede at a local show and the vendor didn't know the species. The only thing he new was it's "common" name which he said was an African tiger centipede. I thought it might be ethmostigmus trigonopodus. I asked around on a few pede groups on face book and quite a few people said it could be E. Trigonopodus. Then some said it could be scolopendra morsitans black head morph. Looking through Google at ethmostigmus trigonopodus pics I didnt see any with legs the color of my pede. However there was an image of a scolopendra morsitans black head that looked similar. So I've come here for a final ID.
