  • 24 October 2014
TLDR
Ulyxes spp show a remarkable variability in male cheliceral development, which assorts according to feeding behaviour, and complicate previous attempts to recognise male mouthparts as reliable features marking higher-level natural groups that include dermanyssoid vertebrate parasites. Expand
Re-evaluation of Pseudoparasitus ( Gymnolaelaps ) annectans (Womersley): a new genus and two new species (Acari: Mesostigmata: Laelapidae)
TLDR
Nidilaelaps has a number of important differences from Pseudoparasitus and other genera it has been previously assigned to, but shares characters with Australopapuan vertebrate-associated taxa, particularly the Androlaelaps’ ulysses species group and Laelapsella Womersley. Expand

Predation of nymphal tomato potato psyllid, Bactericera cockerelli (Šulc) (Hemiptera: Triozidae), by the predatory mite, Anystis baccarum L. (Trombidiformes: Anystidae)
TLDR
Overall, the results of this investigation confirm that these mites consume late instar psyllid nymphs but may need to be at high densities before substantial reductions in psyllids occurred. Expand
