These tiny arachnids were prevalent on large rock faces in the splash zone. Although I usually see them completely red, many individuals had dark red backs.

Great photos of this tiny creature!
how did you find the name of them?

Thanks. I found them in a book; A Photographic Guide to Seashore Life in the North Atlantic: Canada to Cape Cod.

It was purchased online. I am not sure if the website the book was purchased through was Chapters or Amazon.
