Longbodied cellar spider

Pholcus phalangioides


Pholcus phalangioides, known as the longbodied cellar spider or the skull spider due to its cephalothorax looking like a human skull, is a spider of the family Pholcidae. They are also commonly referred to as "daddy-long-legs" because of their very long, thin legs, and as their name implies, are found mostly in dark and damp places like cellars and basements. The pictured female was spotted under a porch of a house, in Tzoumerka mountains National park, Epirus region, Greece
