house centipede

6111   Krista. Hamilton,  Ontario. Indoors, rainy outside. Late summer, early August. Found on floor of my my bedroom around midnight. About 2cm in length.   Bug is currently dead but I’ve seen it alive prior. 

This appears to be a house centipede (Scutigera coleoptrata) that has lost all its legs; see https://tinyurl.com/create.php for an image and detailed information on this cosmopolitan species.  Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
