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


, : Identification of a new species of Varroa associated with Apis koschevnikovi in Borneo. American Bee Journal 135(12): 827

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.
