Studies on the Taxonomy and Biology of the Tarsonemid Mites, together with a Note on the Transformations of Acarapis (Tarsonemus) woodi, Rennie. (Acarina.)



Studies on the Taxonomy and Biology of the Tarsonemid Mites, together with a Note on the Transformations of Acarapis (Tarsonemus) woodi, Rennie. (Acarina.)



Canad. Ent, Orillia. 54(5): 104-113



A key is given to the families and genera of Tarsonemid mites, and to the males of the genus Tarsonemus. The food-plants of T. pallidus, Banks, the feeding habits of Pediculoides ventricosus, Newport, and the transformations of Acarapis woodi, Rennie, are recorded. The enormous size of the egg of A. woodi is due to the fact that it has a quiescent, apodous nymphal stage.
