Dendrothereua homa

Dendrothereua homa
Kingston, Marshall County, Oklahoma, USA
October 1, 2016
This was found and photographed during my state's recent Bioblitz event and I didn't think much of it until I got home and started going through my photos. Once I studied it, I realized it didn't look like the house centipede that I'm used to finding in Oklahoma (Scutigera coleoptrata). A closer look leads me to believe it's Dendrothereua homa, which until now was only known from Arizona on this site.
