Mite with yellow eggs - Leptus

Mite with yellow eggs - Leptus
Fredericton, York County, New Brunswick, Canada
June 25, 2015
Size: 2mm
This large mite was eating/attending/investigating a yellow egg deposited on the underside of a goldenrod/aster leaf. I searched and found that it fits the appearance of Leptus in the Family Erythraeidae, Subfamily Leptinae.

I have cross-posted this image to Unidentified Eggs.
