Is this a spider that has lost two of its legs? Or some kind of insect? Seen on a morning glory vine in summer in Norfolk County, Ontario.
Your Arachnid is a Harvestman or Daddy-Long-Legs in the order Opiliones, and it is missing several legs. Like Spiders, Opiliones have four pairs of legs, but they do not have poison glands, so they are harmless.
