Mite - Poecilochirus

Mite - Poecilochirus
Camden County, New Jersey, USA
June 11, 2009
Size: ~1 mm
Mite, with a distinctive pattern, found on this Beetle larva:

Everything seems to match: the pattern, the host and the location.


JUST A SUGGESTION - Poecilochirus

I'm eager to see if you get an ID
I believe this is the same type of mite I found inside empty tree cricket eggs. BTW, Great Photo ( 400% better than mine ! )

Hopefully this ID will help you as well.
