Very cool! Excellent collection as well. I've seen mortisans before but I think this is the first time I've seen Aussie specimens. I had no idea the were that many variants. Those green/blue morph are awesome. Great post:clap::clap:

thank you guys :)
ill get some more pics of new arrivals in the coming weeks !, so stay tuned to this thread :D (will edit photos into the first post :) )

laeta are very nice pedes, jet black body with red stripes and usually sky blue legs, magnificent pedes :).
im sure there is still more pedes in australia that havnt been found yet, alot of unresearched spots, and we are not allowed to collect in Northern Territory or Western Australia where most of the good pedes are!!

Those were interesting. Hey I saw a vid of an aussie some years ago, it looked to be around 6 inches, not much color, are there many sps that get that big there, or does the size tell you what it prob was?

You have some gorgeous pedes!!!! I LOVE blue legs on a centipede. Congrats on having so many rare species, too!


(and I just want to point out that: In post-count #1492, Venom posted about pede-legs blue.. {D"
