Crab or Scorpion-like bug.

Crab or Scorpion-like bug.
Edmonds, Snohomish County, Washington, USA
March 6, 2006
Size: 2mm
We found this bug on a couch cusion. It was mid day and in a bight and sunny room. It had crab or long scorpion-like claws. It looked like it was feeding on stuff too small for us to see. The claws are longer then they look in the image. It appears to be brownish with a reddish stripe up the middle of its back. We are also fighting carpet beetles in our house. If someone knows what it is, please let us know.

This is a pseudoscorpion. They are cool little arachnids...
