I was just looking at some mouldy ginger found in the fridge under the microscope and was horrified/delighted to find (what looked to be) mites growing in it. I have searched the web and can only find references to red spider mites which these are certainly not. They were clear white and under 40x zoom about less than a mm across - does anyone know what they could be? Furthermore, what are they feeding on (ginger root is only ~15% carbohydrates - is that enough?) and has a minimal (~1%) amount of protein.
Here is a picture (sorry for the quality but the white thing looks to be a mite).
