Welcome to Opiliones WikiEdit

Opiliones is a collaborative website about harvestmen that anyone can edit!

Quoting (paraphrasing) Seiyapedia: Disappointed by the amount of erroneous data floating around on the web, and frustrated to see their contributions in constant jeopardy at Wikipedia, Adriano Kury & Co. decided to create their own organized hub of information.


The idea is to centralize knowledge on Opiliones in a single place which links to a wealth of information on the web and in the real world using the immense power of collective edition. It is only an embryo, but it may become something meaningful, depending on OUR input...


Most pages can be accessed using the most important "browse" category [1].
