Harvestmen: Opiliones Checklist

17 April 2023

Arachnids from the order Opiliones are commonly called harvestmen, harvest spiders, shepherd spiders, or daddy-long-legs (not to be confused with Pholcidae). In Latin, opilio refers to “shepherd”. In England, they were called harvestmen because of a superstitious belief that there will be a bad harvest that year if one was killed.

Harvestmen are sometimes mistaken for spiders but can be easily differentiated by their fused body, while spiders have two distinct segments of their body — opisthosoma (abdomen) and prosoma (cephalothorax). As they lack venom glands, they pose no danger to humans. Harvestmen also lack the ability to produce silk, unlike spiders. Most harvestmen have exceptionally long legs with some recorded species exceeding 30cm in leg span.


This page consists of a personal checklist of all Harvestmen that I’ve encountered over the years.

Many thanks to Adriano Kury, Shahan Derkarabetian, Matthew Lindsey, Miguel Medrano and harvestman-man for most of the identifications!

This page will be updated regularly, please let me know if you spot any mistakes.
