Soil Centipede


Very long, flat centipede. Reddish brown in color. My index finger in the second picture for size comparison.


Sears Bellows County Park, New York. Perhaps seeking refuge from the rain on our tent. Sandy soil, wooded campground area.


These normally live in the soil (hence the name). They are eyeless.
