Hi tpreston, do you have any other images of this myriapod? I’m having trouble IDing it. Its too short to be a Chelenophilidae or any other type of Geophilomorph, they basically start at 33 segments. Is it possible this individual had been injured and lost a few segments? A nice clear image of the tail end would be helpful, also its a little hard to see the first 10 segments or so clearly which can also help with ID

Sorry but the only images of this sighting are the 3 already here. Funny, i never noticed how short this one was compared to the others I normally see.
