Withius piger, Lazy Chelifer
Withius piger has a cephalothorax that is reddish-pale-brown; the opisthosomal tergites pale brown with small darker patches, and pedipalps clear reddish-brown; length: 2.3–3.0 mm.
This cosmopolitan but uncommon species is associated with stored food products (especially grain) and warehouse debris and being synanthropic it has probably been introduced into Britain in ships’ cargos. In 2006 a female was found in a farm barley store just south of Bristol.
