Identification of a new species of Varroa associated with Apis koschevnikovi in Borneo


American Bee Journal 135(12): 827
Identification of a new species of Varroa associated with Apis koschevnikovi in Borneo
Mite specimens were collected from A. koschevnikovi drone brood and compared with those collected from A. cerana colonies. Comparative measurements are given for 9 morphological characters which differed significantly between the Varroa specimens. The new species may be distinguished from V. jacobsoni by its lack of a seta on the trochanter of the palpus, and other morphological features.
