Can anyone please tell me what this is? Is it a spider?
It was spotted in Hampshire on an outside gate.
Any clues would be great
Hi Andy, this is not strictly a spider but an Opilione or Harvestman, another arachnid group closely related to spider.
The species is Dicranopalpus ramosus and is a relatively recent coloniser. It is a good garden species but tends to be seen more frequent in late autumn.
