Big brown Lithobius

Hi Andy

You're almost certainly correct - but L. pilicornis has been recorded from the Oxford area, and a school is just the sort of place it could turn up. At that size I guess it could also be L. peregrinus?

I don`t think it is L.pilicornis but most probably, as indicated by others, L.forficatus.
picture not sharp enough to see tergites on back in detail but the general "jiz" is of L.forficatus.
