What is this "Alien" looking spider??

HI There All.


A friend of mine snapped these weird looking "Spiders" on his patio, and we are having difficulty identifying them.

Can anyone help?

    They're harvestmen or harvestspiders - they're arachnids but not strictly spiders. They're in an order of their own (Opiliones). The UK has about 30-40 species (I think - can't find a checklist). I don't know what species yours are but they do look Oligolophus-like
