A Rare Encounter with a Pseudoscorpion

I think this is my third find of a pseudoscorpion since we moved into this house. That is one very seven years! All the more rare as I examine the available habitats almost daily.

These are very difficult to photograph as they avoid daylight and being only 2-3mm long adds to that difficulty. I managed to get a couple of shots of this one and share them with you.

This one was on a thick piece of detached bark on the ground.

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5x-5x ultra-macro at x2.5 and at f8, twin TTL flash hand-held.

All images have been cropped by about 20%.

I think this is the Common Cthonid Cthonius iscnocheles
