Harvestman

Opiliones sp.

Description:

Opiliones are known for their exceptionally long legs relative to their body size. The most obvious difference between harvestmen and spiders is that in harvestmen the connection between the cephalothorax and abdomen is broad, so that the body appears to be a single oval structure.

Habitat:

On a bridge rail over a creek in a city park. One leg was investigating a black widow nest.
