Logy Bay, Northeast Avalon, Newfoundland/Labrador, Canada July 3, 2006 Size: 18mm Fully Stretched
There is something white on it's back just above the last set of black legs. I wonder if this is some sort of parasite. I've included this close-up of that object but it's kind of fuzzy since it is only about 0.2mm in length.
