Varroa destructor ?

Is there a guide page for this yet? I can't seem to find one.

Do you have a specimen that has been identified? We create new pages when we have representative images; we don't want to have thousands of empty info pages.

I have a photo.
I posted it here:

Someone can confirm ID and if they like start a new page...
or frass it if it's not up to snuff for the mite.

...or stick it in with Apis mellifera if the photo still has some merit.

You can go ahead and post it to Varroa. I don't know enough to be sure that there is only one species or what, but we do have a page for the genus. Good contribution!

Will do.
Yeah, I don't know if there's more than one species either. I'm happy with posting to the Varroa section. Thanks.
