This common name refers to only one class.

Arthropod Class Arachnida

These are pretty much always called Mites and Spiders.
These occasionally aquatic creatures are not known to be particularly important to trout, but I have a few neat pictures.

Acari (Mites) Mite AdultAcari (Mites) Arthropod Adult View 4 PicturesThese tiny little aquatic mites show up in my samples from time to time. This fairly large one is only about 1mm long, so these aren't relevant to trout, but it's interesting to know that they're down there, anyway.
