Harvestman-Opiliones; Tithaeus sp. (?)

Harvestmen look a lot like spider superficially (often confused with daddy-long-legged-spiders) but they are not considered as true spiders.

 

Despite also having eight legs, harvestmen do not have a distinctively separated thorax and abdomen like spiders do: The thorax and abdomen are merged together (as seen in photo .

 

Harvestmen are usually herbivours or scavengers.
