Lithobius (Sigibius) microps – This is one of the so called ‘stone centipedes’, but this is quite a small one at around 10 mm (3/8 in) long. They are very fast moving and never stop still so I have had to contain this one and snap it with the camera set at high speed to try and freeze it. Like all centipedes it has poison claws which it uses to inject venom into its prey to kill it.
