Unidentified Silverfish - Ctenolepisma lineata

Unidentified Silverfish - Ctenolepisma lineata
Brighton, Monroe County, New York, USA
September 12, 2008
I think this is a silverfish, but I've never seen one so large or strikingly marked. The body must have been over an inch long, but I don't have an exact size. It was on the outside of my garage at night.

Agree...
This is the four-lined silverfish (C. lineata).

My friend (and silverfishman) Nathan says this is a freshly moulted Ctenolepisma lineata.
