Certainly made my day!

Seen on a tree trunk. By design or chance it clung to a lichen that camouflaged it well.
I was surprised how large it was - maybe 20cm.

Happy New Year?! Not for this harvestman! Two hours later and Photo 11 shows all that was left of the Pantopsalis. The end photos show the chubby peripatus two hours later. Not sure if the peripatus had 15 or 16 pairs of legs (end photos best for leg counts but not conclusive).

An amazing glass squid. When I disturbed it it would tuck in its tentacles and eyes, and even its fins and show big spots. So cool. The area around the brain was brightly iridescent. There are very faint long tubercles around the mantle if that helps with species id.
Really hard to get nice shots with a compact camera sadly.

Description

Adult male Forsteropsalis bona. This species is distinguished by extremely dilated chelicera II segment, long bow-like fingers of chelicera segment III, a lack of dense plumose setae on the pedipalps (ruling out sympatric F. photophaga), denticulation of chelicera is also not hypertrophied (also rules out F. photophaga), a lack of distinct apophysis on the pedipalp (ruling out F. fabulosa), prosoma/carapace and area around ocularium (eyes) is entirely unarmed (no denticulation).

Distinguished from Forsteropsalis pureora by lack of light median stripe running down opisthosoma and disproportionally longer pedipalps in F. bona. Forsteropsalis pureora has denticulation on the prosomoa while F. bona is unarmed. Tooth shape/pattern/presence of the fingers of chelicera III is also a useful character but dilation of chelicera segment II is not reliable because of intraspecific weapon polymorphism prevalent in this family.

Collected nearby localities of holotype and paratype specimens. Collected on rock wall above stream near cave entrance.
