  • The Arachnida include the terrestrial chelicerates that everyone is familiar with, and that nearly everyone would rather not be too familiar with: spiders, ticks and mites, and scorpions (Scorpiones).
  • Ticks belong to the class Arachnida, which counts mites, spiders and scorpions among its members.
