This new troglodyte is the first of its order from Central Asia and the first strictly subterranean terrestrial creature recorded in the country.

Thank you. But the photo is of a centipede not the troglodyte (person who dwells in a cave), as promised in the first paragraph!

Troglodyte can mean any animal that lives underground.

I have been called a troglodyte. But not in that context.
