Gamasiphis ochotensis sp. n. is described based on the morphology of females and males collected from litter and soil in the Sakhalin and Kuril Islands of Far East Russia. A key for the separation of females of 10 recognisable species of Gamasiphis distributed in Asia is provided. 
Two new species of Rykellus (Acari: Mesostigmata: Ologamasidae) from Brazil and a key to the world species of the genus.
The females of the eight recognisable world species of Rykellus are identified from adult females and males collected from litter and soil in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.
Hotspots of mite new species discovery: Parasitiformes (2013–2015)
A survey of type localities of new species of the Parasitiformes described in two journals during the last three years revealed interesting patterns of species discovery.
Mesostigmata as Biological Control Agents, with Emphasis on Rhodacaroidea and Parasitoidea
This chapter comprises the biological and ecological information regarding the Mesostigmata, a large mite order corresponding to about 20 % of all known mite species found in different habitats, but are most abundant and diverse in the soil.
Where are primary type specimens of new mite species deposited?
Overall there were still more new species deposited in collections in developing counties than developed countries, and the top European collections hold type specimens mostly of foreign origin, whereas those of South America, Asia, Africa and Australasia hold type specimen mostly originating from their own countries.


A new species of Gamasiphis Berlese (Acari: Ologamasidae) from North Asia, with a key to the Eurasian species.
This is the first species of the large genus Gamasiphis to be described from the northern Palaearctic Region and a key for the separation of females of the 11 recognisable species of Gamasphis described in Eurasia is provided.

This is the first species of Gamasiphis described from Brazil and a key is provided for the separation of species of this genus known from the Neotropical Region.
A new species of Ologamasus (Acari: Ologamasidae) from Brazil
Ologamasus cananeiae sp. n. is described based on specimens representing all postembryonic stages, collected from litter in a forest area of southeastern Brazil. A key is provided to help in the
Studies on Indian mites (Acarina: Mesostigmata)
Five species of mites are described and figured, three of which are new to science, and Veigaia uncata Farrier, 1957, are recorded for the first time from India.
Three new species of Gamasiphis (Acari: Mesostigmata: Ologamasidae) from Brazil, with complementary information about Gamasiphis plenosetosus Karg and a key to the world species of the genus

Zur Kenntnis der Raubmilbenarten der Gattung Gamasiphis Berlese, 1904 (Acarina, Parasitiformes)
In Europe, mites of the genus Gamasiphis Berlese, 1904 occur in agricultural soils of glass-houses. The species are living free only in tropical and subtropical climates. Twenty species are
An annotated checklist of Iranian Mesostigmata (Acari), excluding the family Phytoseiidae
The present checklist provides the results of a survey of collected and identified mesostigmatic mites in Iran including 348 species belonging to 128 genera, 39 families, and 17 superfamilies of which one genus is a new record for Iranian mite fauna.
New insights into predatory mites (Acarina, Gamasina) from tropical rain forests with special reference to distribution and taxonomy
Ancestral groups that are distributed worldwide already existed in the Permian and the Triassic before Pangaea started splitting into today´s continents and during the Cretaceous, revealing connections to past geological events.
Bird's nest ferns as reservoirs of soil arthropod biodiversity in a Japanese subtropical rainforest
Although species richness in bird's nest ferns may not be as high as for the forest floor, the hypothesis that these epiphytes are important reservoirs of arthropod biodiversity is supported.
