A small arachnid, less than 3mm long. It was a dark gray with red tones in the pedipalps. The fourth image is the ventral view. It had not trouble running backwards as well as forward. Many have poison glands on their pincers; however, they are too small to affect a human.


Originally spotted on my living room ceiling, I relocated it outside. Pseudoscorpions are found throughout the world.


Yay! Finally found a Pseudoscorpion ;-)
