Could you please tell me what the attached picture is? It has a scorpion like tail, and is pretty small. There is a pair of hemostats in the pic for size reference. A friend found it outside his house.

Dear Sherry,
This is a beneficial predatory Wheel Bug nymph that might bite if carelessly handled, but it is not considered a dangerous species.
