Strigamia maritima centipede.
Strigamia maritima adult centipede from a wild population collected from the shoreline at Brora, northern Scotland. The complete absence of eyes is characteristic of this order, geophilomorph, of centipedes. The genome sequence revealed the absence of genes solely involved in vision and in the circadian rhythm pathway. For additional insights from the first myrapod genome sequence, see Chipman et al.
