The Final Sight by The-Dude-L-Bug The Final Sight by The-Dude-L-Bug
They're such effective insect predators that I'm sure this view is the last thing it's prey ever saw.

These little house centipedes are so beautiful, we had one species when I was growing up in Utah that was purple. You didn't see them very often but they were sure pretty! I wonder if it because of something in their diets that changed.

Yes, I've seen images of ones that are purple,

Not sure why some are purple, but they apparently still considered "Scutigera coleoptrata"; As far as I can see, they aren't thought of as a separate subspecies.

I don't think they are a subspecies either, I have never been able to find anything to show either way. Some of them sure are a bright purple though.

I was surprised it stayed still for the frontal shots. Usually as soon as the flash goes off, they scoot.
