    Order : Pseudoscorpionida / Chelonethida
    Pseudoscorpions are tiny arachnids. The possess no sting. They have large 
    pincers to catch prey, such as clothes moth larvae, carpet beetle larvae, 
    booklice, ants, mites, small flies, as well as each other.
    This species, about 2-3mm in size, I found at Bedelands Nature Reserve,
    Burgess Hill.
