Tailless Whipscorpion from Ecuador

bug identification request
Hi Daniel,
Thank you for the previous identification. When searching for swallow-tailed moth (which looks much different than a swallowtail moth), I came across hits for swallowtail butterflies, but I didn’t think to also search under swallowtail moth. I have one more id request from Yasuni National Park. We saw what appears to be a spider in the attached picture while doing a nightwalk. Looking on your site, it resembles a tailless whipscorpion. Is that correct? Thanks,

Hi Oliver,
You are correct. This fierce looking creature is a harmless Tailless Whipscorpion.
