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.

Richland, WA(Zone 7b)

Isn't that a "Daddy Longlegs"?

(Zone 7a)

One of many with that common name.

Trenton, NJ(Zone 6b)

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.

Trenton, NJ(Zone 6b)

thank you JoParrott.
the word 'daddy longlegs' gave me the clue. found some images for comparison.
wonder why its not a spider ? it sure appears like a spider to me.
anyway, i shall mark it as solved.

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.

Probably a parasite of some kind.

No problem. If you want to know what it is for sure, you could try posting your pics in a new thread. Most folks don't look at Solved threads.
