Scutigera rubrilineata (Newport,1844)

Scutigera rubrilineata (Newport,1844)

Original description: Newport G. (1844). A list of the species of Myriapoda order Chilopoda contained in the cabinets of the British Museum with synoptic descriptions of forty-seven new species - Annals and Magazine of Natural History, 13: 94-101, see p. 96.

Order: Scutigeromorpha

Family: Scutigeridae

Original rank: species

Original genus: Cermatia Illiger, 1807

Type locality: Indiâ Orientali

Last taxonomic scrutiny: Stoev P., Geoffroy J.-J. (2004). An annotated catalogue of the scutigeromorph centipedes in the collection of the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris (France) (Chilopoda: Scutigeromorpha) - Zootaxa, 635: 1-12, see p. 6.

Notes: The name was misspelled as rubrolineata in most, if not all, subsequent records (excl. Stoev & Geoffroy, 2004). The taxonomic status of this taxon is still uncertain. Probably it is conspecific with Thereuonema microstoma (Meinert, 1886) (cf. Haase, 1887; Stoev & Geoffroy, 2004). T. rubrolineata Verhoeff is identical with T. longicornis [cf. Würmli, 1979].
