Hi, noob here looking for a spider ID on Lancashire.
Appearing at night we live on the edge of a field.
I would like to know what it is and if is likely to bite humans.
Thanks in advance.
Hi Sven the noob. Strictly speaking it's not a spider - it's a harvestman or harvest spider. They're arachnids but in a different order (Opiliones) to spiders and the UK has about 30 species. I can't get this one to species but they're all harmless.
Hi, many thanks for your reply.
At last, a spider (of sorts) that I am not scared of in the garden.
We have huge walnut orb weavers (one bit me a few years ago giving me cellulitis)
And Garden (cross) spiders too.
