- E. Lindquist
A critical historical review of previous classifications and other work on tarsonemid and related mites is presented. General information concerning tarsonemids is reviewed, including the following:… Expand

The occurrence of arthropods in amber exclusively from the Cretaceous and Cenozoic is widely regarded to be a result of the production and preservation of large amounts of tree resin beginning ca.… Expand
Plant-feeding mite diversity in Triassic amber (Acari: Tetrapodili)
Carnian-aged amber (c. 230 Ma) from north-eastern Italy contains the first pre-Cretaceous inclusions of arthropods, plant remains and microorganisms. Here, we report further recovery of mites from… Expand
