I live in Dublin, Ireland and our bugs are straight forward and little different. We are surrendered by much of fields and forests so we see a lot of normal bugs.
Except this one. Never seen it before. I send a pic of a boy scout leader and he never seen it before either in Ireland.
This is a non-native Harvestman in the order Opiliones, Dicranopalpus ramosus, and it was first reported to us in 2008. It seems to be well established in the UK.
