  1. Respect for having it identified, Jivko, I imagine this one was not easy. Posted 8 months ago
    1. In fact a lot of discussions concerning the ID. There is a similar species, Z.anatolicus, not very well described. I have inserted links in the description, the sources I used to identify it. Posted 8 months ago
  2. Opiliones seem to lose legs as easily as I lose my hair.
    Seven will do nicely until next moult.
