Florida Blue Centipede

I found this centipede in my basement. It had evidently discovered a way in after a few days of heavy rains. This species of centipede commonly invades homes. It is a tropical species of centipede that can be found throughout the Southeastern portion of the United States.

And yes, it can inflict a painful bite if mishandled.
