Symphyla NL Found a more recent and slightly larger image of a Symphyla - this one from the Netherlands ...<br />
Some more on this class of Myriapoda with this image:<br />

Symphyla or Garden Centipedes (sometimes Pseudocentipedes) are not Centipedes (Chilopoda) at all, but form a class of their own. Impossible to identify from photos, so it won&#039;t show up in JD&#039;s taxonomy for now. Maybe I&#039;ll try and identify the next one, but even under a microscope these are not easy...

  1. Only 200 species known world-wide, once again you unlocked something very interesting! Posted 2 years ago
    1. Well, yes ... but it makes sense to assume there will be many more species. The problem being (me thinks) that these are a pain in the lower region to identify, partially because they get easily moved with exported plants (in the soil) so you will often need to consider all species of the world and there aren't really any keys for that :-/ So most people will not bother and just tag them as "some Symphyla" same as I did here. Of course, if you do that, no new species get described either ;o) Posted 2 years ago
