Keith, sorry to say you've

Keith, sorry to say you've been sold a pup by a guy who has only ever made one invert ID on iSpot (this erroneous one!). The image is almost certainly of St.subterranea (but need more detail of front and back end to be certain). IT IS NOT GEOPHILUS CARPOPHAGUS - EITHER SENSU LATO OR SENSU STRICTO (COUNT THE LEGS!).

In frustration, Steve

PS - note this specimen has about 160 legs (80 pairs) - by my reckoning that is not half of 100 legs, but a lot more than - need I say more?

PPS - And G.carphophgus is orange/purplish-grey - NEVER yellow.

Suspect you may have got the message :-) Steve
