Flat-backed millipede (not centipede) from Borneo, from the order Polydesmida: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44Xgo53zf....
Again I believe you have a flat-backed millipede (order Polydesmida http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polydesmida...). See these similar images from Sabah: http://www.profimedia.sk/fotografie/ploc..., http://www.flickr.com/photos/37384813@N0..., http://www.flickr.com/photos/31137609@N0.... Unfortunately there are no Scientific names on those. Please continue your search to get the scientific name of the species.
Well if the name being used for the red Borneo "centipede" is correct, then no, because a centipede (arthropod class Chilopoda) is different from a millipede (arthropod class Diplopoda). Centipedes have one pair of legs per body segment and millipedes have two pairs of legs per segment (after the first few segments). There are of course other differences. Some of the images on the web labeled "red Borneo centipede" look more like millipedes than centipedes to me. If you can find the scientific name rather than the common name your search may yield better results.
it is the same with red borneo centipede??
Hello. This spotting is accidentally listed as a reptile. It is an arthropod, specifically a millipede, maybe a member of the order Polydesmida or "flat-backed millipedes".
