The centipede is the third smallest known 31c/240 spaceship, after the silverfish and the caterloopillar's 31c/240 variant. Until the construction of the silverfish in 2020, the centipede was the smallest 31c/240 spaceship making use of the 31c/240 reaction, and was therefore the smallest period 240 31c/240 spaceship.

It was created by Chris Cain later on the same day as the shield bug, and actually reuses most of its circuitry despite having a very different shape. Its smaller size is due to a more compact front-end that was built by Cain a day earlier.
