With pointed, acuminate paranotal corners, this is Asiomorpha coarctata (Saussure, 1869) (order Polydesmida: family Paradoxosomatidae). This species is another Asian species that has been widely introduced and is common in South America; it is known in North America from Florida. It looks like Oxidus gracilis, whose paranotal corners are blunt and not prolonged. Rowland Shelley, North Carolina State Museum of Natural Sciences
