The harvestmen are a diverse group of arachnids (order Opiliones). They may colloquially be called daddy longlegs. Although superficially spider-like in appearance, they differ greatly from true spiders in several ways. They have no distinct separation in thorax and abdomen, and only a single pair of eyes. They are further distinguished from spiders by often being generalistic, opportunistic feeders rather than predators - a rare trait amongst arachnids. They might hunt, scavenge or graze.

In Empires of the Undergrowth, the harvestman keeps its body at a safe distance from attackers with its long legs - although the legs themselves can be quite brittle.
