Thank you, Tom, for this amazing catalog of creatures. I was able to identify this Arizona House Centipede in my Vermont kitchen from your photos. I have some very clear close ups as well as a movie, if you are interested in collecting images. Further search reveals it as a House Centipede (Scutigera coleoptrata), so I'm not sure about the Arizona part. It is more golden than mine, maybe that is a significant difference.
I also identified a clown beetle from your photos, and I have some nice pics of one as well.
Thanks again, I will bookmark this site.
