Moss mites and Timmiela crassinervus

I was going to hike today but instead I took my Jeep to the shop and now it's too hot to hike and I'm tired due to my PLMD keeping me awake until 1am.

Yesterday I looked at some   Timmiela crassinervus  and I made some videos of mites that are living in some moss that I am trying to grow.  I hope the mites are not eating my moss.  In the second video it looks like the mite tasted the moss
