Hello Bagga.. This is eligible for new Mission...http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1148...Also check IDs of your old spottings those you can add in this mission..
thanks both of you for knowledgeable discussion.
thank you Gopal murali !
and the Indian tiger centipede has broader segments than the spotting above
maybe they sold them as exotic pets and some where set free or escaped
Color depends on the environment it lives the above species of Scolopendra polymorpha is restricted to USA and its not found in india.
the Indian tiger centipede only has a red and black pattern but the spotting above has a yellowish color and a red head
thank you KennethDG for id !
