Red water mite - Eylais

Red water mite - Eylais
Surry, Hancock County, Maine, USA
May 31, 2018
Size: 3-5mm

Moved from Mites and Ticks.

This is an Eylais (Eylaidae). The characteristic 'eyeglasses' shape of the eye lenses may be apparent in this photograph, or it could just be a reflection from the water; however, the body shape, colour, and trailing fourth legs are good clues to the genus.

Thanks for the ID, Heather
