Abstract: 

The geophilomorph centipede Strigamia maritima is widespread in littoral habitats along the Atlantic coast in Europe. In Germany it has only been recorded from a single locality in Germany, namely the island of Helgoland. However, the records are more than 50 years old, and its current status on a national level is considered unknown. Here we present a recent record of the species from Germany and the first record from the island of Sylt with a brief discussion of its habitat and possible dispersal mechanisms.
