A survey of odonate fauna in Zambia (Central Province, Luano District) resulted in discovery of ectoparasitic larvae of Leptus (L.) chingombensis sp. nov. (Trombidiformes: Parasitengona, Erythraeidae) on four species of dragonflies (Odonata) representing four different families assigned to Zygoptera and Anisoptera. The morphological characteristics of the new species is supported with DNA barcode sequence. Despite some intra-group variation related to relatively large sample, the morphological a...
AbstractThe first occurrence of a parasitic mite, Leptus Latreille (Trombidiformes, Erythraeidae) parasitizing an adult male of a trapdoor spider Actinopus Perty, 1833 (Araneae: Mygalomorphae: Actinopodidae) and the first occurrence of Leptus sp. larvae in the municipality of Manaus, Amazonas state, Brazil are reported.
ABSTRACTThe first record of a parasitic mite, Leptus Latreille (Trombidiformes, Erythraeidae) associated with a Zethus cylindricus (Hymenoptera, Vespidae, Eumeninae) is reported from Brazil. Larval erythraeid mites are common ectoparasites of insects and arachnids, but this is the first time they were collected in association with a solitary wasp.
Abstract Eight new species of mites are described and illustrated from China: Abrolophus unimiri sp. nov., Erythraeus (Erythraeus) yangshounicus sp. nov., E. (E.) zhangi sp. nov., Leptus guilinicus sp. nov., Balaustium innocentae sp. nov., Podothrombium xianicum sp. nov., Leptus coloanensis sp. nov. and Johnstoniana rudolfi sp, nov. Abrolophus aitapensis is reported for the first time from Macao, China. New records are given for Podothrombium paucisetarum, Allothrombium ovatum and A. pulvinum fr...
Larvae of Leptus (Leptus) holgeri Haitlinger, 1999 were collected from undetermined Orthoptera (Acrididae) for the first time from Vietnam. This paper presents new morphological and meristic data for the species. All Leptus species found on Orthoptera are mentioned and their distribution are given.
Abstract We provide a check-klist of nominal taxa of terrestrial Parasitengona mites (excl. Trombiculidae and Walchiidae) distributed worldwide and assigned to three super-families, i.e. Calyptostomatoidea, Erythraeoidea and Trombidioidea. The list contains 1784 species, of which 786 are known exclusively from larvae, 860 — from active postlarval forms and 138 — from both. The data on the type localities and the hitherto known distribution of the species are included in the survey.
Abstract Leptus (L.) maxorata sp. n., L. (L.) tenerificus sp. n., L. (L.) edwini sp. n. and L. (L.) canaricus sp. n. are described from weevils collected in the Canary Islands. Furthermore, new hosts for L. (L.) millipedius are recorded from Madeira: the weevils Laparocerus noctivagans (Wollaston) and L. lamellipes (Wollaston), indicating this species could use several arthropods as hosts.
Leptus (Leptus) salicus sp. n. collected from unidentified Orthoptera, L. (L.) korneli sp. n. and Erythraeus (Erythraeus) capeverdensis sp. n. both collected from herbaceous plants from the Republic of Cape Verde are described.
Larval erythraeids: Leptus pozzoicus n. sp., Charletonia austisensis n. sp., C. cuglierensis n. sp., and Hauptmannia sardiniensis n. sp. from Sardinia and Abrolophus marinensis n. sp. from Corsica are described. Leptus josifovi beRon and Eutrombidium robauxi soutHcott are new to the fauna of Corsica and Sardinia. Charletonia glifadaensis HaitlingeR, C. dalegori HaitlingeR and Allothrombium fuliginosum (HeRmann) are new to the fauna of Corsica.
