that is a lithobiomorpha "stone" centipede

indicator are 15 pairs of walking legs and the strong tergite heteronomy (the back armor segments are alternately very wide and very skinny).

both those characteristics contribute to the biology of the stoners to be able to run quickly

It's legs were uniform like a regular pede, only a tiny version. - Like a miniature red-headed pede.
