I had this interesting looking bug wander into my house the other night. It was about 1-1.5cm big and sort of clumsily moving. I’ve never seen anything like it and I’d really like to have it identified. The pictures aren’t really the best quality because it kept moving around but hopefully they will suffice. Thank you!
This unusual Arachnid is one of the Harvestmen in the order Opiliones. A few months ago, we needed assistance from some experts to identify similar looking Harvestmen from Crete as members of the family Trogiuidae.
