Red Mite - Anystis baccarum

Red Mite - Anystis baccarum
Ascension Parish, Louisiana, USA
Size: 1mm
Could this be a species of velvet mite?

Edit:
After a bit more research, these appear to be in the family Anystidae. Specifically anystis baccarum. I don't see a guide page for them. Please confirm this before creating a guide page.

Anystis baccarum - Whirligig Mite
