That’s not a spider… Class Arachnida, yes, but that’s a huge class. Is TheScientist really telling us that the Vonodes ornata “Harvestman” has been reclassified, from order Opiliones family Cosmetidae to order Araneae? If so, which spider family? Where can I read more about this?

Also: With the uncountable outstanding and really interesting images posted daily on the web, why was this non-descript and uninteresting amateur photo picked as “image of the day”???
