These may look like fragile spiders and they certainly have the requisite number of legs, but these are not spiders. The Harvestman does not make a web and has a one-piece body. This tangled collection of legs (48 in total) represents 6 Harvestmen all huddled together by our front door! Varying in sizes, the biggest had a leg span of nearly 4 inches.
