Tailless Whipscorpion

Dear Lolzor,
Sometimes a location is critical for proper identification, but we did not need your location to identify this Tailless Whipscorpion.  We have never tried to identify Tailless Whipscorpions to the species level, and we have always been content with a much more general Arachnid order Amblypygi
Trying to identify these non-venomous distant relatives of Scorpions is well beyond our capabilities, but the location of the sighting might be an easy way to narrow down the proper species identification for any Amblypygists (we just made up that word) out there.  Recently we have been indicating the location of the sighting as a means by which letters may be classified in the future, and to that end, KSA has us a bit confused.  Did you sight this Tailless Whipscorpion in Kosher Supervision of AmericaWas the Amblypygid scuttling around the Kurt Salmon Associates offices?  Was it spotted in the locker room after a KERNERSVILLE SOCCER ASSOCIATION game?  At this time of the year, we get numerous letters from Australia and other points south of the equator where summer is approaching.  Perhaps you are in Kimberly, South Africa.  Maybe, just maybe you are in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Alas, we are just going to have to leave the location blank in your posting unless you are able to confirm where exactly this sighting of a Tailless Whipscorpion occurred.

Aloha Daniel –
KSA may be the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Blessings of the holiday season to you & yours ~

Thanks Eliza,
In an attempt to educate ourselves, we were amused at the possibilities a web search provided for the initials, and we decided to have some fun with the response.
