15 pairs after all
Now that I look more carefully, I think this centipede has 15 pairs of legs after all -- it's missing one leg from each side. If you match up the legs and segments (one pair of legs per segment), you can see it's missing the 4th leg from the right side and the 7th leg from the left side.

 
Great eye!
Thanks for your work on this. :)
