I believe #3 is Scolopendra morsitans. I've read that these can be sexed by the terminal legs-the male has a ridge along the lateral edges.

Nice pedes!

Thanks everyone. You've been a big help. Now I can put a name to some of these.



#3 strikes me as one of the island morphs of subspinipes
Are there pics of some of these island morphs to compare to and would that be accurate enough to know what it is?

This is what I think

1. Scolopendra subspinipes
2. Scolopendra subspinipes mutilans 'yellow leg'
3. Scolopendra subspinipes
4. Scolopendra subspinipes de haani??



1. I think this is an asian form
2. from China
3. Island form like barbados, vanuatu, etc
4. maybe Vietnam
