Opilio saxatilis is a species of Harvestmen (Opiliones) known from large parts of Europe. It is closely related to it's congener Opilio parietinus, but slightly smaller and with different preferences for its micro habitat (more natural, often wet), hence it was not influenced as much by the new arrivals that mostly wiped out O. parietinus in northern Europe.
