Netting, trapping, and separation preocedures are described for mites collected from lentic, lotic, moss, water-film, and phreaticolous hebitats. The most useful larval specimens are obtained by collecting gravid females and harvesting larvae atched from eggs deposited in the laboratory. Fluid storage is preferable for most specimens. A versatile method of examining exoskeletal morphology is to observe temporaly slide mounts with ligth microscopy (bright-field, interference contrast, or phase contrast). Scannig electron microscopy of desiccated mitesenhances the study of surface fine-structure but does not replace conventional techniques of illustration (line drawings, photomicrography)
