Hi – I found this bug outside a friend’s house in Basingstoke, it was around a year ago but I can’t remember exactly what time of year. It was just outside the front door on a piece of wood.

Dear Spidey,
This is not a spider.  It is a Harvestman, another group of Arachnids in the order Opiliones.  We believe it is a nonnative species,
Dicranopalpus ramosus, and we first posted a photo to our site in 2008.  

Ooh wow, thankyou very much for replying 🙂
