Madeira's ptyctimous mites (Acari, Oribatida).
DNA-barcode analysis using COI and D2 28S rDNA sequences confirmed the species status of four species of ptyctimous mites found in Madeira, and phylogenetic analyses of COI amino acid data and RDNA sequences suggest a closer relationship between S. (S.) crassisetosus and S.(S.) applicatus.
