  1. Nice! What are these white arthropods? Not expecting a species ID but do you perhaps know which order? Posted 9 months ago
    1. Sorry, Ferdy, don’t have much of a clue. I can remember a post by either Christine Young or Lisa Kimmerling that had some bug that looked similar. I should of taken a movie of these guys, they looked rather humorous waving their legs around..., after I realized they were there! Posted 9 months ago
      1. No worries. Don't have a clue myself either. Have asked Christine to take a look at it. Posted 9 months ago
      2. That is such a cool find! They look like mites or spiders to me because of the long legs and they don't appear to have 3 body segments, like an insect would. Posted 9 months ago
        1. Although, I can't tell how many legs they have...So, I guess they could also be some kind of insect nymph. I favor mite though at this point because of the body and legs. The family Cocceupodidae has some similar mites, such as Linopodes sp.

          But, for spiders, Wulfila sp. are tiny, ghost spiders with elongated front legs, but I don't think the body shape fits.

            1. Interesting, that looks very similar, thanks so much for checking. Posted 9 months ago
              1. Sure thing, I love spottings like this - very intriguing! Posted 9 months ago
                1. They sure look the same... to me. Linopodes of some kind. It appears that the longest appendages seem to be the antennae. Tiny and intriguing! Posted 9 months ago
                  1. Those are actually the front legs, but they do kind of function like antennae! Cool, little critters, indeed! Posted 9 months ago
                    1. Really! They seem to be always waving them in the air. Quite the bugs. Thanks for that. Posted 9 months ago
                      1. That's so cool! Posted 9 months ago
