Psoroptidae

Psoroptidae is a family of parasitic mites, which are 1–2 mm (0.039–0.079 in) long and live on the surface of the skin, rather than burrowing into it. These mites affect various species, including cats, dogs, rabbits, cattle, sheep and horses, causing skin inflammation, scabs, crusting, and hair loss.
