Naples , Collier County, Florida, USA January 23, 2017 Size: .5 mm
This arthropod was living in leaf litter collected under a shiny wild coffee bush and a laurel oak. Its hind legs appear to be for jumping. If the first very long appendage is a leg, this may be a mite. The first two images are dorsal views, the third is a ventral view.
