    Hi Phoebe. Congrats on a great and interesting find. The identity of your critter had been perplexing me for a while now. Gary is absolutely correct - it is a nudibranch. The website for nudibranchs on the sunshine coast has a good match (refer http://www.nudibranch.com.au/pages/tf9523-Euselenop-luniceps.htm). The website forum on sea slugs also has many photos and information on this species (refer http://www.seaslugforum.net/showall/euseluni). Cheers Darren

    Are you able to describe the specmen in more detail? i.e. was it shiny or smooth? were you able to obtain a spore print and what did the spores look like? Images would be most helpful. T

    Ken Walker says

    There is an interesting story about these mites and bees published in 1995 in the Journal of Australian Entomology. See: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1440-6055.1995.tb01277.x/epdf Mites disperse on honeybees as egg-bearing adult female mites. The 1995 story tells of a mite population of species in mangroves in SE Qld which measured about 32,000 mites per square metre.

    Gary Kong says

    Several dead bees indifferent locations in the garden were found to be infested with these mites. This bee was found on the clothes line attached to the clothes, so it seems unlikely that it had died and then become infested with these mites??!! Had a quick Google but not found any reference to some similar on bees. Maybe someone ese has seen these mites and or can identify them and so suggest whether they are responsible for the fate of these unsuspecting bees??
