Description

I observed this spider resting on a tree's branch. It is as small as our thumb nail. It is red in colour.

I came to know after research that they are called 'Red Velvet Mite'.

As a result, acarologists (the people who study mites and ticks) have proposed a complex set of taxonomic ranks to classify mites. In most modern treatments, the Acari is considered a subclass of Arachnida and is composed of two or three superorders or...
