So, I've found a Centipede on my house's floor and captured it, and took some photos before letting it go, and wanted to post the pictures here because 1. Centipede, and 2. Wanted to ask how do they look.

hnptixb9flu61.jpg?width=960&crop=smart&a

big picture.

q5eo1rncflu61.jpg?width=960&crop=smart&a

close up 1.

0toa28peflu61.jpg?width=640&crop=smart&a

Close up 2.

Lastly, I have a small video, but I can only post it as a link.

https://i.imgur.com/U1Aq3qe.mp4

 

Anyway, that's all the photos from me, but I noticed there is no General Invertebrate photo thread where we can show off our non-ant photos, so, if anybody wants to use this thread, I'd be honored.

I've found these outside before. I don't know their scientific name but I believe the common name is garden centipede. About their being no general invert thread, I did make a macro photography thread, but it wasn't used much.

Ah ok, in any case I'll use this place for any non-ant invertebrate photos because I don't want to flood the forum with essentially copies of the same thread.

I've found a beetle on my floor, took a photo before releasing it into the wild, I have no idea about the species though.

That's a good photo. Unfortunately I have to crop my photos to get decent close ups and they end up looking all grainy. Thankfully I have a large invertebrate to get decent photos of. Here is a picture from months ago.

Try messing with light, that'll help pick up all the little details. Beetle is a dermestid and centi a lithobiomorph.

Quite an interesting one too. Porcellio or maybe Trachelipus, I'm unfamiliar with the European taxa.

Agreed, I find similar looking ones here, but I'm not experience with beetle taxonomy so I can't identify them.

Thanks! And man, there are so many "-fly" out there, I would have never thought that would be called snakefly, who even thought of that, I mean, with its long neck it looks more like a crane.
