Beautiful sketches, and thanks for the article. Harvestmen are one of my favorite arthropods. It's interesting that something with what you might think are so many evolutionary disadvantages (tiny mouthparts, almost completely blind, extremely fragile limbs) have been so successful. I find it interesting that a number of species go through millions of years of evolution with the original stock preserved even while it speciates.
