Protolophus singularis


Tan, brown and orange arachnid with very long legs. Like all Harvestmen, the body appears to be a single segment due to the lack of tapering where the cephalothorax and the abdomen meet. There is also only one pair of eyes kitting high up on the cephalothorax. This species has two rows of bumps down the saddle of the abdomen. The saddle is partially outlined in creme/orange.


Wood pile in Oak Woodland. Found in the southwestern US and into Mexico

Amazing spotting, Cindy. Excellent photo too. It certainly is a weird-looking spider.
