Caption

Velvet mite skin. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the body surface of a velvet mite (Trombidium holosericeum). This bright red arachnid is one of the largest mites found in northern temperate zones, with a body length of about 4 millimetres. Its body is covered with fine hairs, giving it a velvety appearance. The bright red colour warns predators that it is toxic. Magnification: x660, when printed 10cm wide.
