This lighter colored centipede can be found in the typical haunts of most other centipedes: under rocks, dead wood, leaf litter.
The claw-like pincers on their abdomen appear robust for such a slender creature. Not much is known about its life cycle or niche. Other members of this family are known to deliver painful bites so it is prudent to avoid handling them.
