Two nominal species of harvestmen from eastern North America, Leiobunum verrucosum and L. nigripes, are generally distinguished by color patterns. However, laboratory-reared individuals and sequential sampling in the field clearly show that adult individuals change from the “verrucosum” pattern to the “nigripes” pattern during normal maturation. Specimens of the two nominal species were obtained from the original H. C. Wood and C. M. Weed collections and found to be effectively identical in all diagnostic details. Leiobunum nigripes is a junior synonym of L. verrucosum.
