  1. That thing has awesome pedipalps! Posted 6 months ago
    1. Yes, these are quite special indeed. My latest photos of these are just snapshots taken on my nightly rounds while actually looking for moths to shoot fot mothweek '19. I should have plenty images of both females and males, also with close-ups of the palps (quite different in the two sexes). Posted 6 months ago

''Dicranopalpus ramosus'' is a species of harvestman. Males are up to 4 mm long, females can reach up to 6 mm. Both sexes have very long legs, and pedipalps with a distinct elongated apophysis that reaches almost to the end of the palp's tibia, making their pedipalps look forked. Their body is brownish with dark markings, the females being lighter colored.
