New phytoseiid mites (Mesostigmata: Phytoseiidae) of Mauritius, with the description of two new species
TLDR
The new total number of phytoseiid mites in Mauritius to seventeen species in nine genera, including two new species, Transeius pungi sp.
Consecutive antibiotic treatment with doxycycline and marbofloxacin clears bacteremia in Mycoplasma haemofelis-infected cats.
TLDR
Doxycycline and marbofloxacin treatment protocols were evaluated in chronically M. haemofelis infected cats and 5 cats cleared bacteremia with doxycycline alone (showing lower bacterial loads at the treatment start), while 10 cats needed to be switched to marb ofloxACin.
Description and observations on morphology and biology of Imparipes clementis sp. nov., a new termite associated scutacarid mite species (Acari, Heterostigmatina: Scutacaridae; Insecta, Isoptera:
TLDR
A new species of Scutacaridae associated with Reticulitermes banyulensis Clément, 1978 termites and strongly resembles I. adleri Delfinado & Baker, 1976, a multivariate morphometric analysis was performed to support its species status.
Establishment and characterization of a low-dose Mycoplasma haemofelis infection model.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that minimal contact with Mhf infectious blood was sufficient for transmission of the infection and the induction of hemoplasmosis, and this low-dose MhF infection might more accurately mirror the natural route of infection, i.e., by arthropod vectors or aggressive interaction among cats.
Tiny mites on a great journey – a review on scutacarid mites as phoronts and inquilines (Heterostigmatina, Pygmephoroidea, Scutacaridae)
TLDR
It is revealed that within the more than 800 scutacarid species that have been described so far, about the half of them can be found together with various animal taxa, and the highest number, by far, is associated with ants.
Monthly characterization factors for water consumption and applica- tion to temporally explicit cereals inventory
We calculated monthly water stress indices for >11000 watersheds with global coverage. In comparison with annual assessments these indices show large differences in many loctions although the general
Lack of cross-protection against Mycoplasma haemofelis infection and signs of enhancement in “Candidatus Mycoplasma turicensis”-recovered cats
TLDR
It is suggested that a previous hemoplasma infection, even when the cat has ostensibly recovered, may influence subsequent infections, lead to an enhancement phenomenon and other differences in infection kinetics.
The Caribbean enigma: the presence of unusual cryptic diversity in intertidal mites (Arachnida, Acari, Oribatida)
TLDR
It is suggested that stabilizing selection caused by the extreme conditions of the intertidal environment is suggested to be responsible for the found morphological stasis of Caribbean Carinozetes.
New and cryptic species of intertidal mites (Acari, Oribatida) from the Western Caribbean – an integrative approach
TLDR
The distribution, systematics, morphology, genetics, and ecology of two newly discovered intertidal oribatid mites from the Western Caribbean are highlighted and one represents a cryptic species as it looks nearly identical to L. bonairensis.
