Sub-tropical equatorial mountain forest habitat at around 1500 MASL. Discovered in a small freshwater creek. I was surprised to see this anthropoid fully immersed in the water.
Upon closer observation of the photograph I noticed that the millipede exoskeleton is supporting a comfortable habitat for numerous mites. Zoom in on the body of the millipede to view the small mites.
