Urban mite

It's somewhat reassuring, I'd say, that one of the commonest animals in terrestrial environments Oppiella nova (approx 300 um - less than half a millimeter) deigns to show up in the gills of fungal fruiting bodies on Belden Avenue, Chicago near the DePaul's campus. Sample taken 14 May 2012 and extracted on makeshift Berlese funnel (above).
