Scorpion Spider- Arachnura sp. ♀

Despite imitating stings of scorpions, Arachnura uses the overall appearance to look like wilted leaves.

 

The tail itself is very flexible and can be curled upwards or downwards whenever necessary (i.e. walking on the ground). The tip of the tail is composed of three pointed ends which can also be used to hold on to the spider's web.
