Sorry for the range of quality on the pictures, I'm experimenting with light and closeups.

Edit: possibly an adult.

I was unaware of that, thanks for the info! Would there be any way to tell if it's an adult or baby?
Adults have sclerotized palpal bulbs.

The palps of slings don't look different between males and females. They don't begin to look different until the penultimate molt, when male palps may look swollen and translucent but lacking the detail of adult palps.

I will keep an eye out for that, thank you very much!
