This is actually a symphylan rather than centipede. Well spotted. We don’t have any other records of Symphyla on CNM because they are usually so small and cryptic. Most Symphyla live in soil/leaf litter like this one, with one or two species known to live in trees.

Thanks for that Simone. Flea Bog Flat is turning up some interesting little creatures.
I'm guessing this needs a new Category in the system?
