ABSTRACT. Parental care in harvestmen may take several forms including egg hiding, egg guarding, egg transport and young guarding. In most species, one adult, usually the female, performs guarding of the young. From 9 July-3 August 2005, we made observations of parental care by adults of the Neotropical cranaid harvestman Phareicranaus calcariferus (Simon 1879) in northern and central Trinidad. Nine observations involved an adult female and young while three appeared to include both an adult female and male with young. The number of young present was inversely related to the size of the young, indicating that parental care in this species may occur over an extended period of time. Keywords: Biparental care, young guarding, Trinidad
