Identification
"The epiproct, or telson, the caudalmost part of the body is broad and truncate as opposed to triangular and pointed as in other brightly colored polydesmidans in the same areas. Even when they don't show the bright adult colors, they can always be distinguished by the broad, not triangular, epiproct." -- Rowland Shelley
