A species of harvestman, known colloquially as a daddy longlegs, with a leg-span of over 12 inches has been discovered living in the caves of Laos.
The arachnid was collected by Dr Peter Jager, head of arachnology at the Senckenberg Research Institute, during breaks while filming a television series in Laos’ southern province of Khammouan.
According to Jager, the specimen has yet to be identified to species level. “In attempting to categorise the creature properly, however, and give it a scientific name, I soon reached my limits,” he said in a press release.
