Forked Fungus Beetle - Bolitotherus cornutus - male

Forked Fungus Beetle - Bolitotherus cornutus - Male
Merrimack, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
December 9, 2006
Size: 12 - 13 mm
My best images of these very tiny mites are in this view. Very little detail, but maybe there's a specific mite that rides the Forked Fungus Beetle. I'll post a couple duplicates in bugguide's mites section.

Those look familiar

:-)

Were you able to learn anything more about these mites?

 
Not that I recall
I worked with several mite specialists in organizing the mites section of Bug Guide at one time but don't recall getting an opinion on these. It's been a while. I have seen nothing similar in Ecuador where I have lived and collected for the past 5+ years.

 
A while indeed
Eleven years since the post, no less! Thanks for your response. Do you have a place online where I could see a photo of a favorite insect you've encountered recently in Ecuador?

 
 
Love it
Euchroma gigantea!! Oh my goodness!! And that huge cerambycid too...jeepers. The larvae for these things must be enormous (and presumably found in pretty big chunks of wood...)
