Scorpion Spider?? - Metacyrba punctata
Willis, Montgomery County, Texas, USA
July 7, 2009
I found this spider last month on our bathroom wall. I scooped him up and relocated him outside. I found your site days later, trying to find out what type of spider it is. I didn't think to take a pic of it at the time.
A few nights later, I found another one on our blinds in our bedroom. First thought is he looks like a tiny crawfish or baby scorpion but definitely a spider, unless scorpions can spin webs. I did see a pic of a pseudo scorpion but this looks nothing like one as you can tell from my pics.
It is only about 8mm long. It has 6 predominant legs and 2 pincer like front legs and looks like stingers on the tips. It is a very cool looking spider and am curious what type it is.
