December 18, 2012
I found this creature under a rock in our garden. I believe it is a short-tailed whipscorpion (Hubbardiidae), but I can find so little information on this group that I am not able to narrow it down any further.

Moved from Short-tailed Whipscorpions.

Sorry for the double move. I meant to drop it here, but missed. :)

Cropped and moved for expert attention.
Moved from ID Request.

I'm not sure how much further this will go, but maybe we'll get lucky. :)

Welcome to BugGuide!

I've been using this site for a while for identifications, but this is the first time that I've uploaded my own image.

And a couple of great additions they were.
Don't stop now. You're on a roll with great bugs. Let's see some more of them! We look forward to your contributions, both images and comments. Welcome!
