Baby Solifugid Sun Spider

Ammotrecha chiapasi


A very small 2mm baby Solifugid. It was so small, I thought it was a Pseudoscorpion until I saw the photographs. The adults of this species reach a size of 2 cm, so this baby is only 10% of its full size. It already has all the features of an adult and shows the pale band on the last segment of the palpi which is characteristic of the species. See spottings: and


Found at night, semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico, 2,200 meters.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
