The day of the Daddy-Long-Legs
Saturday, June 5, 2010, 11 am
Hi Bugman,
They’ve been all over the place today!
One of the Harvestmen had some mites, another had something on the top of it about the size of a mite…not sure what that might be.  Is it part of the Harvestman or another parasite?
With thanx,

Dear R.G. Marion,
Thanks for sending us your photos of Harvestmen.  The organs in question are the eyes of the Harvestman.  You can find an explanation of the two eyes of Harvestmen on this website.
