Message from the Centipede:

I bet you did'nt know that centipedes can think, count and even wish you a Happy New Year, but this one does, and so do I ! To you Fidels looking into my gallery from time to time I wish to thank for your kind testimonies in the past year.

ID: Tracheata; Mandibulata; Myriopoda; Chilopoda; Scolioplanidae; Scolioplanes acuminata = S. transsilvanica = Strigamia transsilvanica. Myriopods are difficult to identify, there are many similar looking families and species. To make things worse, there is much variability in a given species, and the different devloping stages don't look all the same. No complete and accessible keys are available. I used Stresemann, 1961. Exkursionsfauna von Deutschland, Wirbellose I. Volk und Wissen- Verlag Berlin. My ID is at best dubious.

Hahaha, was tut dieser Kerl denn? Solche Verrenkungen! Da hast Du einen außergewöhnlichen Moment festhalten können.
Auch wußte ich gar nicht, das diese Tierchen Fühler haben - oder ist es der Schwanz? Die vielen Beine machen mich ganz konfus!
Egal, vielen Dank und liebe Weihnachtsgrüße an Dich

Hello Dietrich!

You mean 9 for 2009 :-) ? Very smart creature I must say :-) Rather rare guest on TN, but I think very interesting. And this is one of most arty shots of centiped for sure. Yellow BG and of course pose of animal are fantastic.

Hello Dietrich,
A fine capture of a Myriapod that I couldn't ID as I wouldn't know if it were a Geophilus, Strigamia or Scoliophanes. The configuration is nice, as Greg says, a 9 for 2009 and with at may I take the opportunity to wish you a healthy and happy 2009 with lots of finds and photographs from your back yard!
Kind regards,
Ivan

Hallo Dieter!

Tatsächlich, ich wusste dies nicht. Aber eigentlich überrascht es mich auch nicht, warum sollte uns ein Tausendfüssler nicht auch Liebes zum neuen Jahr wünschen können. Es kommt nur darauf an, wie wir hinhören!

Vielen Dank für die lieben Wünsche, und Gratulation zu diesem gelungenen Bild.

Maggie und ich sitzen in unserem neuen Wohnwagen im Diemtigtal und senden Dir und Deiner Frau von hier aus die besten Wünsche für das neue Jahr.

Herzlich

Markus

Hello Dietrich,

A nice way to prepare for the new year with a little help from a centipede! That's something I haven't photographed before, guess I need to start looking at them, now that you've brought them to my attention. I don't have much luck with the technical keys of the sort that you use, I'm not fluent in the technical language used in them, so I'll have to see if I can find a field guide that is friendly to an amateur.

Anyway, thanks for sharing that image and have a Happy New Year.

John

Escelente documento y además de gran originalidad.
Evidente falta de foco en algunas zonas.

Un abrazo desde españa y te deseo un feliz 2009:

Lieber Dieter,
Eine sehr originelle Art Deine Neujahrswünsche anzubringen. Den Neuner hast Du ja noch finden müssen! Der Tausendfüssler hat sich sehr viel Mühe gegeben mit all den Verrenkungen.
Auch ich möchte Dir einen gemütlichen Rutsch ins 2009 wünschen. Wie Du siehst,sind wir wieder in Bern.
Herzliche Grüsse
Anne

Hello Meyerd,
Well done, you must have waited for the right moment and I'm sure this fellow must be able to count his legs too in order to keep them all in good shape! :-) Thank you for this great contribution and all the best wishes for 2009! Ulla
