The life history of a palpigrade is reconstructed through morphological and morphometric multivariate analyses applied to a series of 37 individuals collected in a single locality in Tlalnepantla, Estado de México, during different seasons. Those analyses reveal the presence of three life stages: protonymph, deutonymph and adult. Morphologically, males and females can be distinguished as deutonymphs and adults. Morphometrically the sexes can be recognized in all of the life stages, unprecedented for the family Eukoeniidae.
