Spotting

Description:

This has to be the smallest spider i've seen. it's about 1-1.5 mm in length. Found on the underside of a chinese hat leaf. It's bright orange in color and rests parallel to the leaf veins. It seems to avoid light and when I turned the leaf upside down, it ran to the other side.

I agree with JohanHeyns. This looks like a Velvet Mite.
