Naming Discussion

They're an insect, not a spider. Count the legs.

Where I live people call the 'harvestman' a Daddy Long Legs, and it has eight legs like a spider. Technically, though, it is not a true spider.

Some people call other things Daddy Long Legs, such as a crane fly, which my friends and I always called a Mosquito Dragon.

You could call it Kinky Long legs; I've never had a critter named after me before.
