sun spider ID?
I found this sun spider in the Anza Borrego desert of San Diego County. I can’t seem to find anything online that would help me identify what kind of sunspider it is. Do you know of any resources? Thanks!
We have never had a request to take a Sun Spider or Wind Scorpion beyond the level of order, which is Solfugidae, resulting in the common name Solpugid, or sometimes Solfugid. According to BugGuide: “Only two families in North America, Eremobatidae and Ammotrechidae per The Solifugae Website” at www.solpugid.com/index.htm where you can try to key the species. There is also contact information there for Warren Savary who may be able to assist you.
