Mysterious Tiny Bug (Mite perhaps) - Trachytes

Mysterious Tiny Bug (Mite perhaps) - Trachytes
Port Angeles, Clallam County, Washington, USA
April 6, 2011
Size: 0.2 cm
I sent this in to "What's that Bug" and they could not identify it but decided that it was most likely a type of mite. It was found on the underside of a rotting piece of alder that was mostly buried in the mud. It's shell is very irregular in shape and seems to be semi-transparent, with an odd orange structure inside that looks to have an opening of some kind on the front right corner.

Trachytes sp., based on Drs Walter & Klompen's consensus
Moved from ID Request.
