A centipede is a graph obtained by appending a pendant vertex to each vertex of degree 2 of a path. In this Note we prove that the centipede is determined by its Laplacian spectrum.

Un mille-pattes est un graphe obtenu en attachant un sommet pendant à chaque sommet de degré 2 d'une chaîne. Dans cette Note nous montrons qu'un mille-pattes est déterminé par le spectre du Laplacien.
