Megabunus diadema

    Harvestmen are not Spiders but relatives.
    They belong to the Arachnid order Opiliones.
    Their bodies are fused into one unit.
    Harvestmen have two eyes. They do not produce silk.
    They ambush small insects and will even eat rotten vegetable matter.

  1. Hi Nik,
    I need a couple of these amazing bugs for a natural history shoot with David Attenborough next month. Any chance you might be able to track some down?
    email jamesmanisty@atlanticproductions.co.uk if you can help.
