Centipede or millipede looking insect, yellow and black
That's a millipede: it has two pairs of legs per body segment. Also, millipedes aren't insects, they're in their own subphylum of Arthropoda, Myriapoda.This one might be in the order Polydesmida, but I'm not 100% on that. Also, I removed that extra picture of the moth for you.
I've seen these when I go backpacking on the Appalatian Trail, I still have no idea what they are, good luck
Nice Centipede, but likely the Moth should have it's own page.
