Comúnmente conocido como ciempiés. Es un artrópodo alargado, delgado y dorsoventralmente aplanado, cuyo color varía de anaranjado o rojo a amarillo pálido. Viven en lugares tropicales o áridos, en un rango de temperatura entre 25°C-40 °C, se les encuentra comúnmente debajo de rocas, hojarasca o grietas de troncos, lugares que conserven la humedad y provean obscuridad. Son depredadores activos que se alimentan de otros artrópodos como escarabajos, mariposas, saltamontes, etc. Son animales venenosos cuya mordedura es muy dolorosa; su veneno causa dolor, hinchazón, necrosis en el área afectada y en casos extremos, la muerte si se es alérgico al veneno.
