Not a spider, although, it is an Arachnid. Harvestman. I don't know them well enough to give you more than that. They are harmless.

thank you, kwanjin for your info.
since as you say it is an arachnid, at least its grouping is done. now let us wait if anybody come up with further info.

Arachnids comprise a group consisting of spiders, scorpions, harvestmen, ticks and others. So, all spiders are arachnids but not all arachnids are spiders. If you look closely, you can see the differences between them.
