Pokey, thin-legged mites

Pokey, thin-legged mites
Hudson, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
February 25, 2006
Size: 0.5 mm or less
These very pokey, thin-legged mites were found Feb.26, 2006 on some decomposing fungi I collected Jan. 13, 2006 and have kept indoors since then. As slow-moving as they are, my guess is that they are not predators.

Possibly genus Histiogaster or Sancassania. Both are common in fungi.
