Kleine schwarze Milbe mit roten Beinen
« am: 2017-04-10 15:08:58 »
Found this little mite scampering around in the soil and sparse grass outside a building in Berlin (the last photo shows it in its habitat). I got it under a stereo microscope to take a few photos, but it was too quick for me to get any decent ones, and I wasn't in the mood to kill/dissect it. Looks like a black potato with red legs, but there was definitely a small red spot on the dorsal side, and on the ventral side, the anal and sternal plates also appear to be red. Anyone have any idea what it is?

Cheers,
