City, state, country:
Hello, I'm an undergrad at the University of Connecticut. Working out of the UConn Biological Collections, I am studying centipedes. Specifically I am currently seeking to update distributional records in New England, an area where centipedes are poorly documented. Another goal, however, is to make centipede ID accessible to people who are taxonomically literate but not centipede specialists. So, key-making.
Although many common species can be identified on sight, most centipedes need to be examined under a microscope for a species ID. I am happy to receive and identify specimens ... if you are interested in sending me material, please e-mail me so I can provide a current address. Thank you.
