Piona ? Length 2200µm

Fig 10 - Piona ? - Dorsal

This almost huge water mite was caught in a small pond in Cerfontaine. Length 2200µm – Width 1430 µm. Stored in vial B003.

Process of identification.

I’m almost certain that it’s a Piona but it seems more difficult to find the name of the specie.

I have to produce a good picture with a lateral view of the 4th segment of the palpi to help in this identification process.
