Harvestman

This interesting creature looks like a spider but recently I found that it doesn’t belong to the same family, thus making it ‘NOT’ a spider.

Opiliones are known for their exceptionally long legs.  The difference between harvestmen and spiders is the abdomen and the cephalothorax which are broadly joined thus appearing to be one oval structure.
