The name is there in small letters right above the pic to the left. That's a real good pic of one of these. I see some bigger ones in east tx in and under logs. They seem to be smaller to me in the rocky hill country of central tx. That's a nice looking one!

Those are awesome pictures, tunedbeat. What sort of camera are you using?

Canon 40D w/ 60mm macro lens.


My first encounter of a live centipede, it was roughly 2" in length. Photographing the little guy was not as easy as I have imagined, he definitely tested my patience.


Last one,

Amazing pics Tuned.

Patriot, your specimen was pretty damn gorgeous too.

Asher that looks exactly like my S. polymorpha they are great pedes!

If you have windows photo gallery you can email the photos to
yourself and it will automatically shrink the files. Then you can
drag them back to pictures folder. It will ask which file you want
to keep (because they both have the same name) I usually
keep both files, and if you do it will add a number to the filename
of the shrunken file.{D
