Everything I've read about symphylans describes them as being white.
Yesterday I found several insects under a pot that look exactly like every
picture I've seen of adult symphylans (eg
http://insects.ippc.orst.edu/pnw/insects?KGCode_pres.cfm?ID "72), but these
insects were red. Otherwise: 1/4" long, two long antennae, twelve pairs of
legs, thin segmented body, two pairs of feelers/non-legs at the rear... Is
there such a thing as a red symphylan? I'm in Victoria, BC.
