Nyctunguis sp?

Nyctunguis sp?
Salinas River State Beach, Monterey County, California, USA
December 30, 2010
Based on my reading, I believe this centipede is a member of the genus Nyctunguis, a very common intertidal centipede along the central California coast. This individual was found under a large piece of driftwood in the damp sand just above the high tide line.

I will wait for either confirmation or dissenting opinions before setting up a new folder for the genus.
