Entomological Review

A new species, Siteroptes longisetissimus Khaustov et Ermilov sp. n., is described from European Russia (Nizhnii Novgorod Province). The new species differs from all the congeners in the presence of very small oval stigmata and in the absence of setae v on femora III and IV. A key to families of the superfamily Pygmephoroidea is provided. © 2011 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. Source

Three species of the superfamily Pygmephoroidea (Neopygmephoridae: Pygmephoridae), phoretic on Trox cadaverinus Illiger (Coleoptera: Trogidae) are recorded from the Far East of Russia. A new genus, Troxodania Khaustov and Trach gen. nov. (Neopygmephoridae), and 2 new species, Troxodania magnifica Khaustov and Trach sp. nov. and Pseudopygmephorellus troxi Khaustov and Trach sp. nov. (Pygmephoridae), are described. Bakerdania sinanii Sevastianov and Zahida Al Douri, 1989 (Neopygmephoridae) is considered as a junior synonym of Troxodania decumanus (Krczal, 1959) comb. nov. The key to genera of neopygmephorid females which have median genital sclerites is provided. The taxonomic significance of the median genital sclerite in females of the family Neopygmephoridae is discussed. Copyright © 2014 Magnolia Press. Source

Four new mite species from the Crimean Peninsula (Ukraine), viz. Pulaeus leonidi sp. nov., P. maslovi sp. nov., P. semistriatus sp. nov. and Lupaeus valentinae sp. nov. are described and illustrated. The female and male of Pulaeus krama (Chaudhri, 1977) are redescribed based on Crimean specimens. Pulaeus longignathos Bu & Li, 1987 syn. nov. and P. chongqingensis Bu & Li, 1987 syn. nov. are considered as the male and the female of P. krama, respectively. P. krama is recorded from Crimea for the first time. New nomenclatural combinations are proposed. Keys to species of the Pulaeus and Lupaeus of the Crimea are provided.

The mite Petalomium camponoti Hajiqanbar & Khaustov sp. n. (Acari: Prostigmata: Neopygmephoridae) is described based on females recovered from ants Camponotus buddhae Forel (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) which were collected from a nest located on heights near Shirvan city, northeastern Iran. We also found Petalomium gottrauxi Mahunka, 1977 associated with Camponotus aethiops Latreille from the same locality. These findings present the first record of the genus Petalomium Cross from Iran. A key to species of the genus Petalomium associated with ant genus Camponotus Mayr is presented and host range of the Petalomium is discussed. © 2013 Versita Warsaw and Springer-Verlag Wien. Source

Historical Biology

A new genus and species of mites, Protoresinacarus brevipedis gen. n., sp. n. (Acari: Heterostigmata: Pyemotoidea), is described from Early Cretaceous Burmese amber. This represents the first fossil record of a member of the family Resinacaridae. It is represented by 21 phoretic females adjacent to an adult mantidfly (Neuroptera: Mantispidae). This is the first record of phoresy of pyemotid mites on members of the insector der Neuroptera. The fossil mites differ from extant members of the family in possessing distinctly shorter legs I, which do not reach beyond the apex of the gnathosoma, and by the long setae v1, v2 and c2.© 2011 Taylor & Francis.
