Study of predatory mites in scorpion's enclosure. all material, samples are collected by me on the substrate of coconut peat in Heterometrus spinifer's enclosure and cultured in room temperature (27-30'C). Other samples are mounted and preserved in alcohol, but preserving in alcohol seems make the samples fragile when prepared on glass slide. Suspected to be as Conchogneta sp. , soil mites that live in such humidity, temperature, and eating on decompose nutrient in the soil as well as the left over food. study

material used: microscope Olympus, Olympus SZ-30 MR Digital Camera, iodine staining, 70% alcohol, culture's material.
