Mite with a mite

Mite with a mite
Naples , Collier County, Florida, USA
January 23, 2017
Size: 1 mm (large) .3 mm (small
This mite with a mite was living in leaf litter beneath a shinyleaf wild coffee bush and a laurel oak tree. The view of both mites is ventral. I do not know if the smaller mite was feeding on the larger or if they were just tangled with each other in the Berlese funnel sample. I'd love an expert's opinion.
