  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

Wow! 33 cm. That is a third of a meter, over a foot. I've seen a few big daddy longlegs (What we in Oregon call 'em) but they probably topped out at about 7 inches from foot to foot. So the critter stood about 2 inches high with the legs going up and back down.

I skimmed the article, and did not see if these spiders were larger, or if they just had way freakishly long legs.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

If you google 'daddy longlegs UK' you will discover that the crane fly is commonly known as 'daddy longlegs' here, as well as in Ireland, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.

A harvestman is a harvestman!

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

Here in the US Daddy longlegs are spiders and if you google grandaddy or daddy longlegs you get spiders.
In reality Harvestman spiders are actually not even spiders they are a relative of spiders.
