Species add - Megabunus diadema to Harvestmen

Picked up some moss from Cpt6 basically to keep liverworts hydrated until I got them home. on unpacking I found a surprise visitor - an unrecorded, and very cool, harvestman. If I were to give it an English name "Armoured Harvestman" would be my suggestion! In latin though, "Crowned" seems a fair enough descriptor. Doesn't really tell you about all those leg spines though.
