Unknown Centipede

Hello Bugman –
I found this cute little guy in some leaf litter in oak/madrone forest in Oakland, CA. Any idea what she/he is? thanks,
Your Fan,

Hi Allison,
We have found similar Centipedes in our Mt. Washington garden. They are not very long, about two inches, and very thin. They are also very agile and delicate looking. Sadly, we have never properly identified them. Now that you have sent in a photo, we will try to do additional research.
