More information:

Under a magnification of 100X, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image, reveals some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by a grouping of ham mites, Tyrophagus putrescentiae. The ham mite is an agricultural pest, at times, infesting high moisture grain, semi-moist pet foods, cheeses, and dried meats. It is also referred to as the cheese mite, mold mite or copra mite.
