At the main cafe, Lake Mountain. Spotted by Ellena Best. Pretty sure this is a Harvestman. It would be the first recorded on NatureShare.

  2. Russell Best  I think the stalk-like projections have its eyes on the end, and then its long second pair of legs are used as antennae. Lack of a 'waist' and only two eyes distinguishes them from spiders.
