Multiple legs- this one is a small one at only 2cm in the body length, plus legs.
Scientific name added.
Since you know the identity of your organism, please take a moment to plug in the scientific name. This adds the spotting to the database and takes it off the "unidentified" list. Thanks!
Thanks folks! Much appreciated !
I agree with Martin. This is a house centipede (Scutigera coleoptrata). http://bugguide.net/node/view/25
The tail end contains thicker legs and false antennae (cerci?) so a predator is likely to mistake which end is the head.
I would call this a young house centipede.
