Size: 1.5mm (Not cm)!
This is the tiniest insect I have ever seen. It has 6 legs. i was dissecting moss under a microscope and found it. Just wondering what Order it is even. It has amazing red eyes with dark spots that I wish I could have captured with photos better and I apologize that all the photos are crap.
