Green Centipede - Hemiscolopendra marginata
Collegedale, Hamilton County, Tennessee, USA
May 18, 2006
Size: maby 2 to 2 and 1/2 inch
Found this under a rotten log by a stream. I have never seen a green one before.

Moved from Centipedes.

Hemiscolopendra marginata (Say, 1821), a freshly molted and soft-looking individual. Color is not fully developed yet.

they are everywhere
in california they are everywhere they are just that color in fact i had one of those things comming after me

Freshly molted?
I've never seen one this color either. Perhaps it's freshly molted and hasn't darkened up yet.
