Commonly called a Sun Spider or a Wind Scorpion, this Solifugid is a non-venomous relative of both Spiders and Scorpions that is classified in the order Solifugae. Your individual looks very different from North American Solifugids. We found a similar looking individual from India, that is not identified beyond the order level, on the Animal Photo Album site.
