These spiders seems to hatch/migrate between February and March. I'm really curious as to what kind they are.
This is not a true spider but part of a related order of Arachnids, the Opiliones. There are called Harvestmen or Opilionids and differ from the true spiders in that the cephalothorax (the head end) and the abdomen are fused together to form a ‘one part’ body, where spiders have a distinct cephalothorax and abdomen. The Harvestmen normally feed on dead and decaying plant and animal matter and may prey on very small invertebrates.
Really cool, thanks! Tons of them at the white tanks in Arizona.
Hi…I just sent in a photo of this spider wondering what type it is. I have seen about 7 the last week on my back porch outside by sliding door..no webs or foliage area. I live in Havasu AZ. I have a little yorkie and wanted to know if they are Harmless??
Hello. From every thing I I’ve heard and from what I’ve experienced, they are completely harmless. Just kinda spooky looking.
Thank you for your response. 🙂
There are purple ones that look like they’re made of plastic! They have the black/orange/white legs too.
Hi, your photo appears to be the same species as this one, so the information here applies if it is the same. They are not dangerous to your dog or humans.
