    Schizomida is what you are looking for...unless it actually is a uropygid, but that seems unlikely to me.

    They're (kinda) closely related, but definitely not a Uropygid. The 'palps on even a vinegaroon young'n are pretty distinct. A sexy 'lil specimen nonetheless.

    pretty amazing, i wish i could find some in england
    palpigrades also look like mini vinegaroons, very small and a generalist predator like the schizomid is

    according to wikipedia, they can be found in every continent, excluding arctic and antarctic areas. i would so love to keep one of these.
     
  7. LOL! I thought it was some kind of cricket before more reading and closer look.

    Never knew the arachnid family was THIS HUGE! :liar: (yeah I knew it was over millions but just WOW!) Just when you think you've seen bizarre, something else pops up!
