Time series showing the staphylinid beetle Stenus juno attacking Euphthiracarus reticulatus (see also Additional file 9: Video S2). E. reticulatus shows the first onset of ptychoidy about 50 ms after the attack and is nearly encapsulated when reaching the predator’s mouthparts at the end of the time series (150 ms)
