I think now is the time to create the new mission - International Arachnid Survey just as what SharonW446 mentioned since now everybody can create a mission.

Thank you Antonio! I will put up some photos. You see I have put one for my profile picture :)

You had it right as a Harvestman (Opiliones) I just meant that it isn't a spider, though both spiders and harvestman are in the same Class which is Arachnids. They are just different Orders of Arachnids.

Nice photo of an arachnid! It isn't a spider though. Both are Arachnids but the Order for spiders is Araneae while the Order for the Harvestman is Opiliones. I am new and wonder if this is as it is called "International Spider Survey" or would it be more appropriate to call it "International Arachnid Survey" which would then bring in the Opiliones along with Scorpions, Mites and Ticks.
Loving the site and everyone's photos are wonderful. My photos are very clinical and I don't know if I will post any or not. I will try to help with ID though.
