Hi, can anyone tell me what species of spider this is? The body is about 1"
Sometimes I think Im living in Jurasic Park... About the university I have to find out where, because with the scorpions was easy, I know the scorpions departament (they milk the scorpions for making the antivenom)Originally posted by Mendi
Wonder if the university would help you out with this like they did the scorpion you had? It is a wild looking 8-legger for sure. I'd love to find some of things you can
Thanks Wade, I sure look to buy the book, I allready send the spider to the University, wen they tell me what it is I will post it here.Originally posted by Wade
Definately a harvestmen (Opiliones).
Breaking out good ol' Levi and Levi (Spiders And Their Kin), that guy looks like something in the Gonylepidae family, and there's a pic of an Acrographinotus sp. that looks like it could be a close relative.
I cannot stress enough how handy this little $6 book is. It's somewhat out of date (some names have changed) but you can almost always narrow a specimen down to at least family level, sometimes genus. I'm not sure if it's available in Venezuela, but you might be able to order it through amazon.com.
