This looks like an individual
This looks like an individual of Apheloria virginiensis reducta (Polydesmida: Xystodesmidae). The color pattern is unusual in that the base color is a sort of brownish red rather than ebony black, but this could be explained if the individual had molted relatively recently and had not had time yet to fully harden & tan (e. g. fully develop the adult coloration.
