Size: very tiny
Very tiny. Found under a board in the garden.
Is there a way to determine if this is an immature specimen.?

I live in the Long Island area. Have you found anymore? Interested in finding a Pseudoscorpion but have not done so yet.

Moved from Chthoniidae.

Thanks jana and =v=
Moved from Pseudoscorpions.

from Dr. Steve Taylor, INHS:
"Psuedoscorpions' classfication is based on extremely small structures - I just would not be comfortable assigning names without the critter in hand."
(I suspected that much, and for that very reason was reluctant to make a based on the unsubstantiated ID. =v=)

Thanks -V-
That makes sense to me - that's why it took me so long to ask about it, but finally I did because I needed to know where to put it before I lost track of it.

hi according to sclerotisati
according to sclerotisation of palps it seems to be an adult. It is a pseudoscorpions from family Chthoniidae.

could you pls drop me a word to vmarfus on gmail?
thanks much, =v=
