Photo Magnet: Antennolaelaps Appreciation

It must be the colour scheme, but at least no algorithm has confused this attractive member of the Mesostigmata with Darth Vadar. That would only be appropriate for members of the genus Darthvaderum Hunt, 1996, a member of the Oribatida.

Hat tip to Myrmecos.
