Notes

Found on a warm night under small piece of board in a vacant lot with trash in the middle of La Paz. The board where the Bipes was found was one of only a few select pieces of material that retained a slight bit of moisture. With the Bipes was also a fresh shed. This was the only specimen found, and it is believed it was at the surface of the substrate for the purposes of ecdysis.

Thanks man, and thanks to Victor Velazquez (i.e. Elgaria velazquezi) for taking me to the spot.
