Head of Scolopocryptops sexsp
Head of Scolopocryptops sexspinosus (Say, 1821). Note the absence of ocelli, in contrast to Scolopendridae; note also that only the 1st antennomere (antennal article) is glossy while all the others are fuzzy. In this species the transition from sparsely to densely hirsute antennomeres occurs at the very 1st article, while in another eastern species of this genus, the transition occurs at the 2nd article.
