Here’s another crazy looking harvestman for my collection. This was a small one, found under a log.Â I didn’t want to risk it getting away, so I grabbed it and took those pictures at home on a piece of bark.
Aside from the horns towards the rear of the abdomen, there’s a couple that rise up between the eyes.
There’s also a nice collection of spurs on the hind legs. Here’s a closer look at one of those legs.
Here’s a closer look at the eyes. What I assume is a mite is sitting in front of the eyes, with a scattering of what must be eggs close by. If you look closely, you can find other mites in these photos.
Here’s a few more photos.
I just noticed some harvestman photos online showing how some flouresce under UV light. I didn’t realize that or I would’ve experimented with this one. I already released it in a nearby park, so I’ll have to find another one now!
