|This is the Carrion Beetle (Nicrophorus sp.) whose stereo face shots appear
It had a few of these mites, 4x Nikon CF N Plan on a BHS scope + 1.25x intermediate tube + 2.5x NFK relay lens; polarization
It also had a few very similar to Rik's post
in that even after a vigorous washing in soapy water and rinsing they were still anchored to the beetle by that posterior tube.

Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”
