I collected a specimen of Anomopsocus amabilis (psocid) and noticed that there was a pale mite attached. I sent both to Dac Crossley, curator Emeritus of the mite and tick collection at the Georgia Museum of Natural History. He identified it and sent this image. The taxonomy of this group seems to be a work in progress.
