Hi Bugman. This is the 3rd one of these little guys i have found in my bathroom it has always been on the wall. he is no bigger than 4mm total. He looks kinda scary but im sure he’s harmless. Thanks for your help.
The Pseudoscorpion got its name because it looks like a Scorpion, but it is not a Scorpion. It has no stinger nor does it have venom. You are correct that it is harmless. Pseudoscorpions are able to capture large prey with those animatronic-like pedipalps. Pseudoscorpions are also capable of phoresy, an activity by which they hitch rides of off other creatures, often flying creatures. We have numerous images in our archives of Pseudoscorpions engaging in phoresy.
