Harvestman

Gonyleptidae species

Description:

At first sight I thought the red ornamentations could be some fungus infection, I only confirmed it was part of these harvestmen after I encountered some more of this same species that night.

Habitat:

Atlantic rainforest

Thank you everyone
@Ceejayalyssa, it's big, gonyleptids in general are. I don't have a picture with scale for this one but it's about the size of this Neosadocus: http://www.flickr.com/photos/95419048@N0...
