Arisaema
Photograph
9-5-2007 Arisaema flavum. This plant blooms in early June, sets green fruit on an upright stalk in July, and this fruit ripens to orange red in late August when the plant declines and shrivels to the ground. The fruit has sat on the ground for several days. This plant survives our USDA Zone 5 winters in the garden, seems to get pollinated and produces fruit, but it does not germinate.

So, on my daily garden inspection, I noticed this Harvestman actually pulling one of the seeds out from the fallen cluster and carrying it some 10 inches away before doing something to the seed. I've seen ants carry away seed, but never Harvestman.

"Tom: Your Harvestman, Daddy Long Legs, looks like a Phalangidae. They do feed on plant juices, but their main diet is insects. Nice pictures. - Phil Pellitteri."
