Tiny black insect about 1-2 mm long. Tiny almost invisible legs. It bites leaving a hive which disappears the turns into a red itcy spot.
To the naked eye you can't see ang of the detail in the picture.. just looks like a shiny wriggling tadpole.
I think it's a staphylinid beetle. But are you sure about the length? 1 mm is tiny. Anyway, there are some similar ones towards the bottom of this page -
