Moved from Soil Centipedes.

Geophilus vittatus
Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a guide page for this one. G. vittatus is one of the commonest and largest geophilomorphs in the eastern U.S. Based on:

- dorsal diamond-shaped markings
- no tapering of the body width toward the head

Thanks for ID. I made a page
