I can say with confidence that this isn't P. phalangioides. Furthermore, it's not even a spider, it's a harvestman, which is in a different order entirely.

The general public has given them the same common name, so there is plenty of confusion.

If you could at least change the ID to say Opiliones, that would be nice. This photo is not sufficient to provide any more specific of an ID.
