This looks like a mite to me.
I agree. Looks to be a Red Velvet Mite in the Allothrombium genus.
I was thinking it was a tick at first, its super tiny. Maybe 2 or 3 mm. I tried to get a frontal pic but was unsuccessfull. Still, an interesting little bug nonetheless. Such vivid red, figured it was worth sharing. Thanks for the comment!
Looks like a mite or a tick tbh, but it can be a crab spider too
The length of the legs doesn’t look consistent with a Thomisidae or a Philodromidae.
Right, I’ve only lived here for one summer, this will be my second and I never saw one of these last year. Still a cool little bright red bug nonetheless! Thanks for the comment!
You’re welcome. I know absolutely nothing about Arachnids other than spiders, but the ID suggested by @LittleSlingLover looks great to me.
Thanks to the comments I’ve been able to do more, better research, I beleive its a Trombicula mite!
I think so. I’m not sure about the size. There are tiny red mites that are parasites on spiders. Sometimes we get photos of the parasitised spiders.
