The Rodamaur (aka Bryobia Praetosa)

Better known to you as the Clover Mite. Those tiny little red bugs you see everywhere come spring time. Rodamaur means “red ant” in Icelandic, apparently. I like it.

By the way . . . I got in to the Pitchfork Depart-ment Show! Whooo! So, if you find yourself at the Pitchfork Music Fest in Chicago this summer, stop on by and buy some plush. (That means you, all you die-hard Public Enemy fans!)
