I would like to add Soil Centipede

Corning, OH(Zone 6a)

I would like to add Soil Centipede but all I know is the order: Geophilomorpha. I believe most soil centipedes are very difficult to ID Family and Species unless you have a very close macro shot of specific body parts. Most of us can't/don't get those kinds of shots. From what I can see there is only one soil centipede entered on DG and that has a family name of Linotaeniidae. I won't add my photo to that name because I don't know for sure what the family name is, and my centipedes look different. So can I add my Soil Centipede with just the Order name of Geophilomorpha? At least people would see the photo and know that it is a soil centipede if they ever ran into one in their garden.
Thank you
