Exquisite collection:clap:

Chy- I think the one that you're referring to is the gonopodless Vietnamese subspinipes(red w/ yellow legs/black striping?). It looks really similar to the creature on Turgut's website?

Peter, what is that all-black stunner? Is it one of those Buton Is. beasts?

What is the black and yellow striped one right before the Malaysian Jewel? That one is beautiful enough to give even the Jewel a run for its money!!

Agreed, please give us a list of the names of those pedes, Peter!
You're making us more than envious...

I see:

Scolopendra subspinipes
Scolopendra subspinipes mutilans
Scolopendra sp. Malaysian Jewel
Scolopendra cingulata
Scolopendra hardwickei
Scolopendra viridicornis
Scolopendra gigantea
Ethmostigmus trigonopodus
Parotostigmus rex

There are some I don't recognize off-hand, but have seen pictures before. The extremely vibrant ones (bumblebee pattern & black body w/ orange-fade-to-yellow legs), are they South African Cormocephalus sp?

those are some great burly pedes! What species is the South African individual?
If I can see well, acording of spiracles, headplate anf first terguite, terminal legs and spines... Ethmostigmus sp.

But better pictures will make better ID.

Cheers
