Emptied my clothes dryer and found this critter amongst my laundry. Is this the larval stage of some basement critter or something that hitchhiked in our clothing? It’s about 1-1/8″ long. Thanks.

Dear Randy,
This House Centipede is missing all 30 of its legs, and we can only imagine the agonizing death it experienced in your dryer.

The horror!  The horror!
Thank you.
PS, by the way, we leave the house centipedes be in our basement, as they help clean-up.
