Magnified 2689x, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed the highly ornate ultrastructural morphology associated with the exoskeletal surface of a mite found on the skin of a deceased lizard, on the grounds of the Decatur, Georgia suburbs. As a member of the genus, Nanorchestes, this is a free-living, fungivorous soil and leaf-litter/moss mite that was simply an incidental finding on the exterior of this lizard.
