El abdomen si parece en cierto modo embotado hayde, talvez sea el nombre comun mas preciso

En cambio, en Polaco se llama lo con "abdomen embotado." ?Curioso, no? Creo que no parece a escorpion tampoco ;)

Yo creo, la verdad nunca he preguntado por qué se llaman así, pero lo haré! Luego te lo hago saber.

Que raro nombre araña ciega, nunca habia oido, me imagino que es por lo que parece que se estan tapando los ojos no?

En Colombia las llamamos arañas ciegas.

Yes but is harmless to humans, thanks for the correction Chip, here in Ecuador they are called araña-escorpion, that translates to scorpion spider, so I didnt know its true ID in english.
