  1. Is that a mite behind the left eye Posted 5 months ago
    1. Hi Niel, In the centre behind the eyes are two red spots, which are just that - red-ish spots in the cuticula. Behind and below the left eye you can just about see the rostrum running to the back - also redish-brown. Is that maybe what you are inquiring about? Anyway, I see no mite ...
