Species text
This centipede is a large and impressive animal capable of penetrating human skin with its poison claws. It occurs in scattered, more or less urban, localities in south-east England with a few records from the southwest (Barber & Keay, 1988), and at the time of publication of that provisional atlas it is noted as being recorded from fifteen 10km squares.
