Pseudoscorpion Mimicking Spider by melvynyeo Pseudoscorpion Mimicking Spider by melvynyeo
Found a small jumping spider that mimic Pseudoscorpion. When we first spotted it, we thought it was a Pseudoscorpion until it jumps! Why would a spider mimic a Pseudoscorpion????

Its abdomen is much skinnier than a pseudoscorpion... perhaps it's a scorpion mimic??

I found one of these on some timber in my yard last year, I rushed in and grabbed my camera and got a video of it, www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8bVQZ... it was quite interesting watching it run around.

Why indeed.

Has this species been formally identified yet?
