  1. Another (not so) nice touch: it seems to be infected with mites. Posted 4 years ago
    1. Oh damn! You think that's the red dots eh? I thought of them when doing ID because there was no red on any of the photos I found. Mites is a good/sad guess.

      1. Yes, it is fairly common, another example:
        Red-Velvet mite nymphs parasitizing a scorpionfly female. University Campus Kortowo-Olsztyn, Poland (July, 2011).<br />
This scorpionfly suffers from an infestation of Red-Velvet mite nymphs, as tentative ID Trombidium rowmundi.<br />
