Smallest latching switch?

Is this the smallest mechanically-latching switch? I can't find anything smaller and using a smaller momentary switch seems to require other components which consume power and/or consume additional space, negating the difference in size.

There's no way to answer your question for a number of reasons.

First and foremost, you give no scale information at all for that picture. We have no way of knowing if the pin pitch is 0.5 mm or 0.1 inches, or what.

Second, you are asking people to prove a negative. Even if no one here is aware of any switches that are smaller, does not mean that they don't exist.

The switch above is 7 mm x 7 mm.

I'm not asking anyone to prove anything. I'm asking whether anyone here knows of a smaller switch and is willing to share knowledge of it. If I can't find it, it might as well not exist as far as I'm concerned.

What kind of switch do you need? SPST, DPDT, what?
