Ah! I think this must be what we spotted on a lake at Colwick Park a few weeks ago? Hadn't got binoculars and photos on phone weren't clear enough to upload.

Banstie Harvestman

Yes, I think you're right. It probably is a harvestman as the body appears as one. There are eight legs on photo though. Never seen this type before. We frequently see the brown long legged type.

Thank you. I think it's white lipped. I shall have to look more closely next time I find it.

Thank you. There seems a great range of colours and patterns in the adult Harlequins. Do they all come from these larvae? Or are they all separate species grouped under the name of Harlequin?

I'm not convinced yet it's a harlequin as firstly quite small and secondly I'm sure I've seen these here in the UK since my childhood. I shall ask Harlequin survey or Opal for an id.

Mmm .... I was thinking type of pond skater. It never goes under water as far as I can see.
