Centipede ID - Strigamia branneri

Centipede ID - Strigamia branneri
Norfolk, Virginia, USA
December 14, 2008
Size: 24-28mm
Soil Centipede? Found in leaf litter. It was eating the smaller centipede to the lower right.

Moved from Soil Centipedes.

Strigamia branneri
This one took me a minute because the red color suggests S. bothriopus, but the leg count (~40) and the faintly visible diamond markings (most easily seen at the end of its body) tell me this is S. branneri.

Moved from Centipedes.

can't tell you more

Thought so..
