A review of glaber-like species with reduced sclerotization and ventral ornamentation: The scutatus subgroup (Acari: macrochelidae: Macrocheles)
Nine described and two new species of Macrocheles are united by a set of characters that are interpreted as reductions from a more strongly ornamented ancestor in the glaber species group (sensu Walter & Krantz 1986) and are assigned to four species complexes in the scutatus subgroup.
