Leiobunum blackwalli in Gorseinon

This attractive and relatively large harvestman was hiding under an upturned bucket by the garden shed this afternoon. Key features include the long, narrow tarsus of the pedipalp (visible in the upper image tucked under the body), smooth body, bi-spotted trochanters (first joints on legs) and the whitish rings around the eyes being separated by a narrow black band.
