This illustration depicts a dorsal view of three members of the class, Arachnida, a representative scorpion on the left, a spider in the center, and a representative tick on the right. The scorpion is a member of the order, Scorpiones, the spider is a member of the order, Araneae, while the tick is a member of the subclass, Acari. The important feature highlighted here, is that it is the degree to which the body regions are fused that differentiates these groups from one another.
