I've seen that, but I thought that all arachnida has 8 legs... so, is that a new kind?

There are a lot of critters that look like spiders but truly aren't. I would suspect you saw an insect that looks superficially like an arachnid.
A belief that is held in carefully nurtured ignorance of the alternative is hardly a belief to be taken seriously. -Richard Dawkins

Yes arachnida have eıght leg
maybe lost two leg
Most likely lost 2 legs unless you had a chance to look at it under a microscope and see that there were never legs attached to its body.

I think it lost its leg by any accident or so one. because arachnida will be an arachnida if it has 8 legs.

Arachnids belonging to the orders Acari and Ricinulei do go through a hexapodal larval stage. However, all healthy non-mutant adult arachnids have 8 legs.Hexapodal larva of Ricinulei (Pseudocellus pearsei) from Yucatan.
