Description

Opiliones
Identified as Megalopsalis on Bowerbird by Ken Walker: "Chris Taylor from Curtin Uni says: "This is a female, which makes it a bit tricky. The main possibilities are a Megalopsalis species or Tercentenarium linnaei; the two can very easily be distinguished in females by the appearance of the genital operculum, but of course that's not visible in these photos. Looking at the photo locality, I'm leaning slightly towards Megalopsalis, as the impression that I get from specimen records is that Tercentenarium is generally found further inland in the drier parts of the Wheatbelt. Megalopsalis leptekes and M. tanisphyros are both known from this area, but the female of neither has been identified.""
