It's definitely not Strigamia
It's definitely not Strigamia, in those ones the body width tapers noticeably towards the head. I'm putting this in the Geophilidae, based on the number of legs and lack of tapering. The dark color reminds me of Geophilus mordax, but without a close-up view of the underside of the head and the terminal legs, I can't say for sure.
