This suborder (Cyphophthalmi)

This suborder (Cyphophthalmi) is not British.

Is it not?I wasn't sure it

Is it not?

I wasn't sure it was a Harvestman, as it has a much larger body and thicker, shorter legs than the spindly harvestman I am familiar with. There's quite a lot of them in my back garden.

Not Cyphophthalmi

a bit of research later, it is not Cyphophthalmi, as apparently these are rather small. This was about 1.5 inches (legspan)

i'm not quite sure what it is?
