Hi Bugman,
I found this on a brick wall in Kent, UK, end of October.
I have never seen anything like it before, are you able to identify it?
Many thanks,

Dear Mikey,
This is not an insect.  This Harvestman is an Arachnid in the order Opiliones.  Sometimes called Daddy-Long-Legs, they are often confused with Spiders, but unlike Spiders they do not have venom.  They are considered harmless.

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for the info!
Kind regards,
Mikey Moore
