First recent record of the centipede Strigamia maritima from Germany
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.
