Very nice picture
Critter actually completely harmless since it has no venom and is useful in the garden !
This is not an insect nor a spider but is part of the arachnids, in the same way that the scorpions, mites & cie !
Why 'faucheux' ask... As Patjoe has well explained, the opilions, when they are attacked, have the ability to 'undo' a leg (autotomie)... tab will continue to move 'as a fake', which will attract the predator's attention while the opilion escapes in the opposite direction ! Finaude eh !!!
Unlike spiders, also capable of kicking a leg when it is caught by a predator, paw will stretch (thinner and smaller) at the next moult, the opilion will not delay !
Voili, voilou ! Richard.

Opiliones, Opilions, better known under the vernacular name of 'reapers' or 'faucheux' (may be due to the fact that they appear in the fields at the time of the harvest and of the legs acting as fake) are an order of arachnids, such as spiders, scorpions or mites. The name opilion comes from the latin opilio, and means ' shepherd of sheep ', which has possibly the origin of the shepherds that stand on stilts in some countries1.

Fantastic ! I have never seen it so clear and so close.

your template (either a faucheux, a spider, or a alien, it does not change anything...). Also, for sharpness.

It is super net, this faucheux, in its decoration of green that goes well with the complexion : Bravo Gontrand62
Patjoe knows it all about this lovely creature, as to me, I would make an assumption about the origin of its name : in my childhood, I've slept more than once in the hay, in the mountains, and faucheux, very many, were taken a walk the night on our faces : not very pleasant, but I can confirm that it does not bite ! Then 'faucheux', because in the mowed grass ?
(I must confess there are also in the corners of my ceilings, it bothers me to kill them...).

Hello Gontrand, I do not know if this can help...
Just like the scorpions and mites, it is part of the great family of Arachnids, probably because of its eight legs (He is able to abandon a deliberately to escape a predator...), but is not considered as a spider full because his body is in a single part. Apparently, he is a native of the south, but extended over the whole of France. I don't know, but The Fan Belfortain is an expert on foolish and will surely find us answers. In any case, the photo clear, it is the details of this faucheux (nicknamed so because of his long legs maybe ?...). Bravo for this cliché. Thank you.
