Opilio parietinus - Moulting (2/2)
Subadult Opilio parietinus almost done stripping off an old skin :o)
Different leg posture here:
This image was taken in Rotterdam 2013-07-18 before the population (one of the last two known in NL) was eradicated by stupid human interference.
''Opilio parietinus'' is a species of harvestman. It is found in Europe and North America.
It is similar to ''O. canestrinii'', but has dark spots on its coxae, and is generally more of a grayish green color. Like ''O. canestrini'' it was often found on house walls in central Europe, but has by now almost everywhere been replaced by this invasive species.
