Paradiplogynium nahmani sp. n. is described from three specimens taken from the Colossus Earwig Titanolabis colossea (Dohrn) in Australia. This new species differs from its only congeneric species, Paradiplogynium panesthia Womersley, by its larger body size and presence of one pair of latigynial setae (instead of two pairs). Setal designations are given for leg setae. Leg chaetotaxy for this species is compared with previous data and is generally, but not entirely, consistent with other…

This paper proposes an alternative hypothesis, that mites in the family Laelapidae could actually be part of complex symbioses, and may sometimes be beneficial to the scarab larvae.
