Found on my patio in the early morning. Possibly Scutigera homa, but perhaps an expert could weigh in? I notice there are still some species not represented in the guide...

Dendrothereua homa
Considering the limited number of Scutigeridae in the US, plus the fact that Scutigera homa is orange and found in AZ; and yours is orange and in AZ, I would say this is S. homa. It is definitely not the widespread S. coleoptrata. However, S. homa is now known as Dendrothereua homa and is apparently no longer considered a part of the Scutigera genus.
