Conk pseudoscorpions

Conk pseudoscorpions
Jefferson Notch area, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA
May 5, 2007
Size: about 2 mm
I collected a lot of aged conks on the first day of my Forest Service-approved search for Py*tho str*ictus, adding to the harvest on subsequent trips. I kept them in a large plastic tote with fine netting overtop and peered in on them from time to time to see what might emerge.

Finally last weekend I broke the conks apart, extracting these two pseudoscorpions and loads of other arthropods. These two were in the same conk. They appear to have short blond bristles on their topside that I haven't noticed on other postings.
