Slender, rather sluggish eyeless centipedes that have 27 to 191 pairs (the number of leg pairs is always odd) of legs and 14-segmented antennae. They burrow in the substrate in a manner similar to earthworms, by elongating and contracting their bodies.
Found under a piece of old railroad tie in my backyard. This mini ecosystem houses ants, soil centipedes, isopods, beetles, and various other invertebrates.
