“This order, sometimes called the Pedipalpi, or feet-feelers, and which derives its name from the Greek polus, many mera, divisions, and somata, bodies, includes two families, the first of which is the Scorpiondae, characterized by their elongated tail-like abdomen, armed at its extremity with a sort of hooked claw, which, when the creatures are in motion, is always carried over the back in a most threatening attitude.” — Goodrich, 1859
