ABSTRACTThis work reports on a new species of Blattisocius mites collected from the faeces of locust insects (Locusta migratoria (Meyen); Orthoptera, Acrididae) at Sharq El Owainat, New Valley, Egy...
A review of acarine gut physiology based on published narratives dispersed over the historical international literature is given. Then, in an experimental study of the free-living predatory soil mite Pergamasus longicornis (Berlese), quantitative micro-anatomical changes in the gut epithelium are critically assessed from a temporal series of histological sections during and after feeding on larval dipteran prey. An argued functional synthesis based upon comparative kinetics is offered for verifi...

ABSTRACTWe examined a dataset of body sizes comprising 3209 species of Mesostigmata to test two hypotheses regarding body size patterns: that species living in symbiotic relationships differ in size compared with those that are free-living, and that mite species show geographic body size gradients. We found that Mesostigmata in symbiotic relationships are considerably larger than those that are free-living, but the type of symbiosis (commensal versus parasitic) had little influence on body size....

Akar sosyalligi icin onceleri farkli gruplandirmalar yapilmis olsa da, gunumuzde, primitif altsosyal (primitive subsocial), altsosyal (subsocial) ve komunal (communal) yasamin varligi kabul edilmistir. Onceki arastirmalar, sosyalligin daha cok Tetranychidae familyasi turlerinde calisildigini gostermistir. Ancak, tetranychid’lerden baska bazi predator ve parazit turlerde de sosyallik veya sosyal yakin davranislar tespit edilmistir. Derlemede akarlardaki sosyal yasam hakkinda bilgi verilmesi amacl...

Abstract A new species of the genus Blattisocius Keegan, 1944 is described based on adult females collected from rotting sawdust in Semnan Province, Iran. Blattisocius damghaniae sp. nov. can be distinguished from other species of the genus by some characters, e.g. presence of 33 pairs of relatively short setae on dorsal shield, including z1 and s2; sternal shield longer than wide; ventrianal shield with almost parallel lateral margins, somewhat as wide as epigynal shield, with only three pairs ...

Because of their small size and cryptic appearance, mites are difficult to detect and hence in most cases their role in nature is overlooked. The role of parasitic mites in reducing the population of honeybees (producer of honey) is well known. The role of predaceous mites particularly of family Phytoseiidae is also of great economic importance as regards management of spider mites on field crops and in fruit orchards. Associations of different mite species and their economic relevance on housef...

Phoretic deutonymphs (hypopi) of Schwiebea sp. mites were detected during examinations of questing adult and nymphal blacklegged ticks, Ixodes scapularis Say, from vegetation at two woodland sites in northeastern Wisconsin, USA, during May and June, 2014. Collection sites were in Marinette and Oconto Counties, respectively. These hypopi are evidently the first reported from ticks in the Western Hemisphere, and they seem to be most similar morphologically to the putatively Holarctic species Schwi...

Cultivation of tropical flowers has expanded considerably in Brazil, justifying efforts to determine the arthropods associated with it. Heliconia species are some of the most important tropical flowers in Brazil. Mites of the families Ascidae, Blattisociidae and Melicharidae are commonly found on those plants. They disperse from flower to flower on hummingbirds. The objective of this study was to identify the diversity of mites of this group in tropical flowers, with emphasis on Heliconia specie...

Predatory mites are among the natural enemies considered for the control of damaging mites and some small insects. It is conceivable that effective control agents could be found in the Ascidae, Blattisociidae and Melicharidae, families whose members are rather similar morphologically. Together, these families comprise over 900 described species. It is estimated that slightly over half of these were described from soil, grasses, mosses or dead organic matter on the soil surface. The main emphasis...

Prostigmata is the larger of the two suborders of the order Trombidiformes within the superorder Acariformes. This suborder constitutes a large assemblage of morphologically, biologically and ecologically diverse groups consisting of 36 superfamilies, some of which consist largely of predatory or parasitic species. In relation to the groups treated in this chapter, most studies concerning the potential as natural enemies of pest organisms refer to the Bdelloidea, Pyemotoidea and Tarsonemoidea. H...
