Hey Bugman,
Can you identify this spider I found in Penang, Malaysia? I’ve been trying to ID it online, but I can’t seem to find anything that closely resembles it. Thanks for the help.

Dear Jon,
This is not a spider, but a different type of Arachnid in the order Opiliones, and the members of the order are known as Harvestmen.  We found your individual identified as Sandokan sp. on the Classification of Opiliones site, but you have to scroll down to see the image.  The same image is posted to FlickR.  Here is another FlickR image.
