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.

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