    Is it the mite itself prepared on a temporary mount, or its exoskeleton, or
    or a permanent slide?

    @Sreerama. I am really excited to see your mite posts. It would be fantastic to see these mites in action, eggs, life-cycle and other aspects. I have managed to study mites live, and as long as you use the slide with the ditch cut out, they will not get squished. For example, http://microcosmos.foldscope.com/?p=3256
    I cant wait to see more on this and thank you for your posts.
