Could this be the harvestman equivalent of an ostrich burying its head in the sand? Or maybe it was just trying to get at something to eat.
After a few shots as I found it, I prodded it into a better position.
It has some interesting “combs” on a few of its rearmost legs.
It’s actually quite small, the body measuring only about 5mm front to back. The longest leg, however, was about 3cm long. I’m not sure what purpose those horns might serve.
I have to admit I’m drawn to these strange creatures. I think in part it’s simply because they are so alien looking.
