Unknown Mite

Unknown Mite
Naples , Collier County, Florida, USA
April 15, 2015
Size: .5 mm
This mite was living inside the petal of a hairy cowpea (Vigna luteola), along with a beetle larva and a thrips.

Moved from Mites and Ticks.

juvenile oribatid
Sorry, can't i.d. it any more finely than Oribatida, in part because it is a nymph, and in part because I'm not great with oribatids!


Thanks so
much for identifying the order for me. I know nothing about mite identification, and I really appreciate your help.
