Spider ID please - or is it?

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

Many thanks,

Andy

    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.
