Is it possible to ID this from photos? I do have the specimen still... Trying to get it to species for a bioblitz. It's a (relatively) larger one, around 3mm.

Specimen?!?
Hi Ashley, I am just now seeing this post. Nice find. This is probably Trombidium, but there are many other genera that could be a surprise. I realize it's been a year, but do you still have the specimen?
