Leiobunum rotundum (Latreille, 1798)
Leiobunum rotundum is one of our commonest Harvestmen. It is found in a range of habitats, but seems to be a slightly more rural species than Leiobunum blackwalli, occurring on low vegetation or on the trunks of trees. It can form loose aggregations on the sheltered aspects of buildings sited in wooded areas.
