For our English speaking friends, I found an English description of S.morsitans on page 39, A Syopsis of the North American Centipedes of the Order Scolopendromorpha (Chilopoda) by R.M. Shelley. The 'dent' is referred to as a middorsal suture.in case you haven't noticed i'm not Englisch speaking,...
i was told you can never tell a specie by looking at a picture,...Either way, yours is a moot point since that photo is S.morsitans.

if you have it,... go to page 24 and look at the 2 illustrations fig 38 and fig 39
and while you're at it,... translate the entire page that describes the specie morsitans for your Englisch speaking friends,... will you ?
