while I was on my computer I saw a strange insect. It looked like walking piece of dust, I took it under microscope and then I realized it looked like a ball dust because it had a dust ball on its back that got stuck due to some big hairs on its back. It is about 1 to 2mm big and strangely has a pair of mandibles inside an other pair of mandibles.

Dear Karl,
This looks like the larva of a Lacewing to us.  Many Lacewing Larvae use camouflage, covering themselves with the carcasses of prey as well as other detritus.

Thank you very much dear Daniel.
Your site is great I am really thank full for your hard work at this page.
Greeting Karl
