Mites on histerid - Lobogynioides

Mites on histerid - Lobogynioides
Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
May 9, 2005
Size: under 1 mm
I posted this image under beetles some months back, but I wanted to put it in the mites section as well.

There are two, perhaps three mites visible on this histerid beetle's underside. I think I see mite legs poking out beneath the left front leg.

btw, the beetle is alive in this photo but wishes it were on its belly instead of its back.

Moved from Mites and Ticks.

Lobogynioides sp.
Image 33300: probably a Lobogynioides sp. (Antennophorina: Diplogyniidae).

(Note: I presume the choice of steeds has much to do with this ID since there is scant detail in the mite image. - Jim McClarin)
