Nice. I would love to have one of these guys one day. Probably my favorite species of centipede

Mutilans has been raised to species status for a few years now.

It means that til up few years ago were categorised in the subspinipes subspecies along with dehaani. Now they’re being treated as a specie for itself.

What does this mean
It means that their correct scientific name is now Scolopendra mutilans, not Scolopendra subspinpes mutilans.
I have a yearling, really nice centipede species.

That really looks like a Scolopendra heros more than a mutilans. Can you get a photo of the head region from above?

Works on my desktop but not on my phone. And I'm still pretty convinced this is Scolopendra heros not Scolopendra mutilans. Some stills would help clear this up 😉
