A few insects produce similar material (silkworms, for example), but nothing comes close to the spinning capabilities of spiders. A pseudoscorpion, also known as a false scorpion or book scorpion, is an arachnid belonging to the order Pseudoscorpiones, also known as Pseudoscorpionida or Chelonethida.
