According to the traditional views mites of the family Pterygosomatidae belong to the cohort Anystina (Krantz, 1978; Kethley, 1982). Kethley (1982), however, noted similarities between these mites and representatives of the cohort Eleutherengona. In the tree diagram suggesting relationships among higher taxa Prostigmata proposed by Kethley (in Norton et al., 1993) this family derives from the eleutherengone clade. However, the characters and ranges of taxa upon which Kethley's hypothesis was…
