Abstract

Dicranopalpus ramous is one of the most characteristic harvestmen in our country. Because this species is quite easy to identify, many persons were able to contribute to the first distribution map ever presented for a harvestman species in the Netherlands. Remarkably, D. ramosus has succeeded to colonize most regions of the country within fourteen years after its discovery
