Nice detail, Tom!
I wonder if we can get an expert in this taxon to visit and assign these more precisely.

Thanks Jim
I'm finding that the specimens are usually needed to go any further with a lot of the mites. I've sent some Erythraeidae and Trombidiidae specimens to Ray Fisher, and he's identified some of them to genus so far. I don't think these are in his field of study though.
