On the identity of six berlese species of macrocheles acari macrochelidae descriptions redescriptions and new synonymies

Redescriptions of five Berlese species of Macrocheles are presented, and synonymies are established for M. elimatus (= M. inornatus Evans and Hyatt) and M. longipes (= M. nemontanus Ryke and Meyer). Macrocheles hirsutissima Berlese sensu Evans and Hyatt (1963) is redefined as a new species (Macrocheles laciniatus), and M. hirsutissima is redescribed. Macrocheles spinipes Berlese, which is phoretic on a phytophagous scarab, is redescribed and compared with M. grossipes Berlese, a closely related, co-occurring coprophilous species. Finally, M. peregrinus Krantz is discussed in terms of its possible synonymy with M. aethiopicus Berlese, originally described as a subspecies of M. alecto.
