ID#:8806
Description:Caption:
Magnified 547X, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed the presence of numbers of mites from the genus, Nanorchestes sp., which were highly festooned with an adornment of chitinous, exoskeletal outcroppings. Under higher magnifications, i.e., PHIL 8808, 8809, these exoskeletal complexities were better appreciated in their diaphanous majesty. To the unaided eye, these arthropods would go unnoticed, but under magnified scrutiny, the details of their incredibly beautiful, ultrastructural morphology were revealed. Members of the genus, Nanorchestes sp., are free-living, fungivorous, soil and leaf-litter/moss mites.
