Checkstyle and Simian

I am trying to install the simian duplicate code checker - I seem to have an issue when I add the module to my checkstyle.xml

<module name="com.harukizaemon.simian.SimianCheck"/>
<property name="threshold" value="6"/>

I get an error saying that the module cannot be instantiated - I have the libraries in my project class path as I am able to run the class.

I tried adding it in the plugins folder and in the plugins/*** checkstyle**/library-extensions folder, and neither of them seem to work. any help would be much appreciated.

I agree. Here's the link:
