Howdy!
This thing is tiny — between 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch. located inside our house in South Carolina in Februrary. They tend to like the corners of the walls. Thank you for your help.

Mite, probably

Dear db,
We believe this is probably some species of Mite and we hope an acarologist might be able to provide more specific information.

We just received a comment indicating this is more likely an Aphid

    This is probably not a mite but an aphid whose antennae look like legs. The small appendages at the back end look like aphid cornicles.
