Tygarrup javanicus (Chilopoda, Geophilomorpha) - an exotic species that has reached Poland.
For the first time in Poland, centipedes of a tropical species Tygarrup javanicus (Attems, 1907) (Geophilomorpha) were found in the hothouses with the tropical vegetation of the Botanical Garden in Wrocław. This Asian species has increasingly been reported from European greenhouses. Its spread is facilitated, among other factors, by small body size and parthenogenesis. In Poland one should also expect other exotic species which have already been found in neighbouring countries.
