The velvety look is unmistakable, Nirmal.
And red velvet at that!
Beautiful creature which I have never seen with my own eyes.
The capture is very sharp, clear and, apparently, colourful.
TFS and regards.

It's the first time I see that insect. How special it is, and even more amazing,its yellowish body-oil is used as Indian Viagra, I just cannot believe it.
Absolutely surprising and original posting

a fascinating creature, so very carefully well presented.
I am familiar with very similar looking bright red velvet ones creeping over rocks in our mountains, but those are tiny, no more than one or two millimeters in length. Such a size is incredible for a mite, like from a nightmare.
Very interesting to read the medical use of Trombidium. Good to read that India has so many natural remedies in use. Viagra should rather be called the American Trombidium. Your Giant Mite looks nicer, and may also work better.
Thank you for this impressing contribution!
My best regards,
