    The eyes and leg socket/body attachment points make this common critter seem all the more alien looking.

    Great stuff and really looking forward to those spider shots.

    I think the biggest difference is that the cephalothorax and abdomen of a harvestman are fused without an obvious “waist” so it looks like they have a simple undifferentiated body. They also don’t build webs and I don’t think they are venomous.

    You know, I hadn't really noticed the leg/body joints until now...they really are cool, aren't they? The spider photos are up--I posted one of the pics in another thread.
