Magnified 5377X, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed some of the ultrastructure displayed by a mite from the genus Nanorchestes, that had been present on the skin surface of a deceased lizard. This organism was festooned with an adornment of chitinous exoskeletal outcroppings. Under this high magnification, these exoskeletal complexities were better appreciated in their diaphanous majesty.
