Hi Mardon, Were you able to collect this specimen? I suspect Abrolophus, but I'd really like to examine a specimen. The diversity in your area is very poorly understood. Nice photo!

Hi Ray, “Yes”, I collected this specimen and it will be included in the package of vials that I will be sending to you. I have collected 68 mites thus far and hope to have 80 before mailing them. I expect to post the box within the next week. Once it’s sent, I’ll PM you the shipping details via iNaturalist. Cheers, Mardon
