Anyone could give me a dicotomic key for identify the species from Portugal?

Or at least, tell me what species are livin there. I've allready saw much pedes and, some are full brown, and another are dark blue in the segments and the legs and the head are orange/"fire color". Very beautifull last ones. The sizes, the bigger I've found must have 10/15cm...

I'm think you need geography lesons;P

Listen to me, caralho!

A mais comun da todas as Scolopendras in portugal is S. cingulata ( the brown one), and the other one provably is S. oraniensis.

i think lithobiomorpha are the most common for almost *everybody*

they are actually really neat little guys. they can take as long as 5 years for some species to reach maturity!
