Abstract

A new scolopendromorph centipede (Myriapoda: Chilopoda), Cratoraricrus oberlii n. gen. and sp., is described from the Nova Olinda Member of the Lower Cretaceous Crato Formation of northeast Brazil. The specimen is tentatively referred to the Scolopendridae based on possession of bisegmented tarsi and paramedian longitudinal grooves on the sternites. This specimen represents one of only four verifiable Mesozoic taxa.
