A putative fossil sejid mite (Parasitiformes: Mesostigmata) in Baltic amber re-identified as an anystine (Acariformes: Prostigmata)

Jason A. Dunlop, David E. Walter & Jenő Kontschán
The Acari (mites) is currently interpreted to consist of two superorders. In contrast to the relatively rich history of the mite superorder Acariformes, fossils of the Parasitiformes are extremely rare. This is especially true of the most diverse order, Mesostigmata, with only nine families recorded, including four named species, having been described so far. As part of a wider effort to clarify the diversity of Baltic amber Mesostigmata the historically oldest fossil, Sejus bdelloides Koch...

Psittophagus hollandicus n. sp., a new feather mite species (Acariformes: Pterolichidae) from the cockatiel Nymphicus hollandicus (Kerr, 1792) (Psittaciformes: Cacatuidae) in Brazil

Fabio Akashi Hernandes
A new feather mite species, Psittophagus hollandicus n. sp. (Acariformes: Pterolichidae), is described from the cockatiel Nymphicus hollandicus (Kerr, 1792) (Psittaciformes: Cacatuidae) kept in captivity in Brazil.

Eriophyoid mites from ferns: description of a new Leipothrix Keifer species (Eriophyidae: Phyllocoptinae) from the Arasbaran forests (Iran) and a key to the world species

Parisa Lotfollahi & Enrico de Lillo
A survey of eriophyoid mites on ferns was carried out in the Arasbaran forests, East Azerbaijan province, Iran. A new species of the genus Leipothrix Keifer (Eriophyidae: Phyllocoptinae: Phyllocoptini) was collected on Polypodium vulgare L. (Polypodiaceae), named as L. pterisfolii, described and illustrated. It is the first record of a mite of the tribe Phyllocoptini on a Polypodiaceae plant. This mite species was found also on a plant of the family Cystopteridaceae, namely Gymnocarpium dryopteris...

Life table of the red spider mite Tetranychus bastosi (Acari: Tetranychidae) on different host plants

R. Pereira de Lima, Marcello M. Bezerra, Gilberto J. de Moraes & Imeuda Furtado
Tetranychus bastosi Tuttle, Baker and Sales was described from Ceará state, northeastern Brazil. It has so far been reported from 25 plant species, among which cassava (Manihot esculenta Crants), common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and papaya (Carica papaya L). Although there is no information about its impact on crop yield, high population levels have been observed on some crops, leading to suppose that damage might occur in some occasions. In this study, fertility life table...

On the taxonomic status of the water mite genus Spongibates Wainstein, 1978 (Acari, Hydrachnidia, Hygrobatidae)

Petr V. Tuzovskij & Harry Smit
The identity of the water mite genus Spongibates Wainstein, 1978 has been examined. After examination of the holotype, we conclude that Wainstein described an aberrant Hygrobates species, very likely H. nigromaculatus. Therefore, Spongibates should be considered a junior synonym of Hygrobates.

Ticks (Acari: Ixodida) of the genus Haemaphysalis Koch, 1844 in Senegal: a review of host associations, chorology, and identification

Massamba Sylla, Mady Ndiaye, Marc Souris & Jean-Paul Gonzalez
The Haemaphysalis genus (Acari, Ixodidae) in Senegal is reviewed. This embodies a summary of specimens collected from vertebrate hosts over three decades. 454 collections were performed over this period (408 from mammals and 46 from birds), representing a total of 5752 ticks in different developmental stages. Seven Haemaphysalis spp. were collected, identified, and inventoried including: H. (Kaiseriana) rugosa, H. (Ornithophysalis) hoodi, H. (Rhipistoma) houyi, as well as four other species belonging to the leachi group,...

A new species of the genus Eutrombicula Ewing, 1938 (Trombidiformes: Trombiculidae) and new records for the species Eutrombicula batatas (Linnaeus, 1758) in Brazil

Ricardo Bassini-Silva, Fernando de Castro Jacinavicius, Sebastián Muñoz-Leal, Ralph Maturano, W. Calvin Welbourn, Ronald Ochoa, Gary R. Bauchan & Darci M. Barros-Battesti
The genus Eutrombicula consists of more than 80 known species worldwide. Species of this genus parasitize amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. In the present study, we describe Eutrombicula daemoni n. sp. collected on the social flycatcher, Myiozetetes similis (Passeriformes) from southeast region of Brazil and partial sequence of the 18S gene was obtained for this mite species. In addition, we provide new locality records and hosts for Eutrombicula batatas (L.) in Brazil.

Evaluation of three pesticides against phytophagous mites and their impact on phytoseiid predators in an eggplant open-field

Ziad Barbar
The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of two insecticides (deltamethrin and acetamiprid), and an acaricide (fenbutatin oxide) on diversity and abundance of mite fauna in replicate experiments carried out in an openeggplant field in Latakia, Syria. Each pesticide was applied three times with an interval of three weeks between two consecutive applications. Two phytophagous mites were observed in all treatments: Tetranychus urticae and olyphagotarsonemus latus. However, the number of predatory mite species (in...

External morphology of postembrionic stages of Lutrilichus javanicus (Acariformes: Chirodiscidae) from Melogale moschata (Carnivora: Mustelidae) from Vietnam

Andre V. Bochkov
eginabstractMites of the family Chirodiscidae (Acariformes: Sarcoptoidea) are permanent mono- or stenoxenous symbionts of mammals living in the fur of their hosts. Among three genera included in the tribe Schizocarpini (Labidocarpinae), members of the genus Lutrilichus Fain inhabit small carnivores of the families Mustelidae and Viverridae (Carnivora). The external morphology of postembrionic stages of Lutrilichus javanicus Fain, 1970 (Acariformes: Chirodiscidae), collected from Melogale moschata (Gray, 1831) (Mustelidae) in Vietnam, is described. This is the second...

Demographic analysis of sublethal effects of spiromesifen on Neoseiulus californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae)

Maryam Ghadim Mollaloo, Katayoon Kheradmand, Reza Sadeghi & Ali Aasghar Talebi
The sublethal effect of spiromesifen on life table parameters of Neoseiulus californicus McGregor (Acari: Phytoseiidae) was evaluated under laboratory conditions 25±1 °C, 65±5% RH and 16:8 (L:D) h. To take both sexes and the variable developmental rate among individuals into consideration, the raw data were analyzed based on the age stage, two sex life table. The estimated values of LC5, LC10 and LC15 for N. californicus are found to be 5.834, 9.529 and 13.267 ppm,...
