Mini vinegaroon-like insects
Lake Worth, Palm Beach County, Florida, USA
June 4, 2013
Size: few mm
Found three specimens under some rotting wood in the dirt/sand soil. No idea what instar so I checked the immature box. They have six legs and a pair of antennae/feelers and move them around like much like how vinegaroons navigate theirs...they have some extension to their abdomen almost like an abbreviated tail/stinger.

Moved from ID Request.

Looks to be something in Hubbardiidae

Strange beast. V may know someone who can ID these.

Thanks for the ID...any idea how to care for them? Should I treat like a regular whip scorpion? Thanks again!
