The name "amblypygid" means "blunt tail", a reference to a lack of the flagellum that is otherwise seen in whip scorpions.
Amblypygids are harmless to humans. They possess no silk glands or venomous fangs. They rarely bite if threatened, but can grab fingers with their pedipalps, resulting in thorn-like puncture injuries.
Damon diadema is a species of amblypygid, sometimes known as the tailless whip scorpion or Giant Amblypygid. It is found in Central Africa, Kenya, and Tanzania where it lives in caves, crevices and under fallen logs.
The animal is 4–28 mm long with a flat body.
