Evimirus Mite Mesostigmata, Eviphididae

This small (0.400 mm) pink, dome-shaped mite is a member of the Evimirus uropodinus complex - a cluster of pan-tropical tramps that have been introduced into Australia. This mite feeds on nematodes in garden soils in St Lucia, Queensland, and has invaded some marginal subtropical rainforests. Related species in tropical Far North Queensland can be found in disturbed tropical rainforest soils.
