Sunday Bugs: Harvestman

Sunday Bugs: Harvestman


This is a harvestman in my back yard.  Harvestmen (order Opiliones) look a lot like spiders but they are not.  They have no silk glands and cannot spin webs.  Also known as daddy-longlegs, granddaddy-longlegs, harvest spiders, shepherd spiders, phalangids, opilionids, there are over 6,400 species worldwide.
