Found this under a rotten log by a stream. I have never seen a green one before.

Moved from Centipedes.

Scolopendridae
Hemiscolopendra marginata (Say, 1821), a freshly molted and soft-looking individual. Color is not fully developed yet.

Freshly molted?
I've never seen one this color either. Perhaps it's freshly molted and hasn't darkened up yet.
