This forum is for discussions and questions pertaining to Centipedes and Millipedes.
I thought this might be of interest of some of you. It is the entire set of references generated by one of the scientific search engines when i use the search term "Scolopendra". Some of the papers are available free online, use google scholar to try and find them. Otherwise the rest can usually be...

The keys on scolopendra.be might be a bit outdated recently, I hope they are going to be refreshed soon. In the meanwhile you can use this actual key:
Just wondering what everyones largest scolopendra sp. was.
Pics would be appreciated!
My largest is probably my S.subspinipes de haani "Mau Chau"
She's pushing 7.5", she's huge!
Next, maybe tying, is my S.subspinipes "Vietnam"
This guy is INSANE! probably about 7" long, super fat and wide.
"THE GIANT CENTIPEDE CLUB"
There will be different opinions, reports of owing something big, rumors of seeing something big and of course the fisherman tall-tales of adding a few inches to something that was seen, BUT post the pics with a ruler if you want it to be included in the "giant...
Bought a better camera & took some pix of the favorites:
S. subspinipes "Barbados" recently molted:
S. polymorpha "blue form":
So I'm quickly becoming a big fan of millipedes.
It all started with a little guy I found last fall.
A member pointed me in the right direction and told me this is Abacion genus.
Found a ton of them today. Maybe around 50 or so. They are lighter in color but I think they are in the same...
I remember reading about the fuzzy fungus people were seeing on the first several segments of their millipedes. I had never seen it before and didn't expect to, but then two of the millis were almost running, looked like something was bothering them. I saw that fungus! It was on their front...
Due to a good measure of generosity from Galapoheros I am pursuing a second generation of these. I neglected to take well lit photos so you'll just have to use your imagination for the time being. After a couple of obligatory "kisses" and an exploration of the mating enclosure the male got down...
...and terribly the vibrations is almost like a mobilephone;when the time i touch the container were i put him.This is the first time encountered like this...and i dont know what exactly of specie is this... can somebody tell and explain it to me.....
i was just wondering if there is a method to figure out what gender these centipedes are. i just got one and am quite interested in trying to mate these one day.
I thought I was digging up a dead centipede. I couldn't see her in her burrow No soil movement typical signs of a living centipede. So impatient me weighed the options. Their was the likely hood she was dead (hadn't drank, ate or done any thing, 2.5 months). Just as well 2 and a half months is a...
I read a lot about Scolopendra subspinipes but some questions are still unanswered.
After weeks of researching I finally bought my first centipede. She should be gravid female but I don't think she is
She is kinda calm, didn't eat anything yet and loves to hide, like all day...
All 6 of our Scolopendra s. Dehaani got a fuzzy today after not feeding for a week. Took some pictures and thought I'd share them :)
I have ( well had ) 5 vietnamese centipedes I bought last year from a member here. They were all doing great until last week. I ran out of crickets and feeding was overdue so I decided to feed them superworms. The 'pedes are about 4" in length and I fed them each one superworm a piece, about 3" in...
Can anyone please ID this specimen ?
size - about 3 inches
This is my first pede, I just need to be sure. Suspect Scolopendra morsitans.
I soon hope to have my website up and I'm already planning to get rhysida celeris and some more easy to get pedes. What else would you fine people purchase?
whilst browsing online i came across the wikipedia page for scolopendra and they had many odd species to me listed with their respective discovery/ papers. anyone even know any of these. examples include S. media, S. robusta, S. childreni etc. you guys should check it out here:...
Please help! My 7" Dehanni has mites or some kind of small white invertebrates crawling all over it. Any ideas on what I can do to get rid of these pests?
Dendrothereua homa is a native US member of the centipede family Scutigeridae (like the more familiar European import, Scutigera coleoptrata).
Not sure if anybody has shot video of these before, but here you go. Enjoy! (Watch it in HD.)
I saw one Giant Glossy Black Pinkleg Millipede (Dendrostreptus macracanthus) baby on the substrate surface. It was about .75 inches long. :biggrin:
Hey Cavedweller and 3skulls...:biggrin:!!
I've posted a similar message in the sale/buy interest page but thought it might be worth trying the myriapod section as well in case anyone didn't see it there.
I am looking for a source for live house centipedes (Scutigera coleoptrata) for a class I am teaching soon. If you...
The springtail population in two of my tanks has exploded lately. They also climb on my millipedes, and I'll often see a dozen hitchhikers on a pede at a time. Do you think this could be stressing out my millipedes?
I want to move some of the springtails from the heavily populated tanks into the...
Hey, my name is Leonard, 26 yr old from DK. I have a pacmanfrog, and are working on a new tank for two crested geckos (and maybe a millipede)....
I have som few questions I couldn't find on the net:
1) Which terrarium size do a giant african millipede needs? I have a tank which are 80x40 cm...
