Does anyone know what kind of insect this is?! They come crawling down from my ceiling in the summertime, frequently right over my bed. I saw an article in the New Yorker a few years back about some endangered species of centipede which lives on leaf mulch in Central Park and wondered if this was it. Unfortunately, after shooting this particular specimen I knocked it down and subsequently lost track of it. This means it is crawling around my room someplace, untracked.
Right then. If I die of some horrible bite, you all know who to blame. Mr. Legsy O’Terrifying, there. I mean, look at the size of those freaking antennae!!! And what kind of harmless insect has the exact same antennae coming out of its ass?! And black-knuckled leg joints?! Jeebus! I mean, it looks like a centipede, it looks like a daddy long-legs, it hangs out over my bed and doesn’t have a very good grip on the wall — what’s not to love?!!!!
