Nannarrup hoffmani

Nannarrup hoffmani

Nannarrup hoffmani is a species of centipede that was discovered in New York City's Central Park in 2003. It is 10 mm long, and has 84 legs. Researchers think the species originated in East Asia and was carried to the United States in a shipment of imported plants. The species is the first new species to be discovered in Central Park in more than a century. It is, possibly, the smallest known species of centipede.
