Abstract

We report the recent collection and observation of large numbers of specimens of the troglobitic harvestman Speleosiro argasiformis Lawrence 1931 in the Wynberg Cave system, Table Mountain, South Africa. Specimens were collected and/or photographed in different caves of the system. Live observation showed specimens fleeing bat carcasses when disturbed.
