Its a pseudoscorpion. Pseudoscorpions are not harmful. They cannot bite or sting and they do not attack the house structure, furniture or occupants. They may be an annoying nuisance, usually during the spring and summer, as an occasional “accidental invader.” They are considered beneficial since are predators of small insects and mites.
