Mitopus morio


Yellow arachnid with dark brown legs. Across her back, a brown "symbol"-line. Actual body was around 1cm of size.


Forest (not dense) on a mountain range near the sea. Around 260m high (unsure).


I'm unsure where I stepped but loads of these came crawling and running away. They were really fast, so I was unable to take a proper picture.

I'm really sad I couldn't take a better picture, but I still have their appearance stuck in my head. Thanks for the info, I'll try to research and find what it is.

I can't see it well enough but think it could be a harvestman (Opiliones), which is an arthropod but not a spider.
