A review of Glaber-group (s. str.) species of the genus macrocheles (Acari: Macrochelidae), and a discussion of species complexes

  author={David Evans Walter and Gerald W. Krantz},
The Macrocheles glaber species group (Acari: Macrochelidae) is a species-rich cosmopolitan assemblage of mites, sorne of which are predaceous on eggs and larvae of synanthropic flies. Seven new species are described in the giaber group s. str. from Africa and Asia, and five species complexes complexes within the glaber species group are proposed. Phoretic associations and distributions of ali known species in the complexes are given. Keys to species complexes are included. 

Combination of morphological characters and ITS-sequence to characterize a new species of Macrocheles (Acari: Macrochelidae)

This species was found phoretic on three species of dung beetles: Scarabaeus laticollis, Geotrupes mutator and G. spiniger and showed that this species was closely related to M. muscaedomesticae.

Records of the Macrocheles kraepelini species complex (Acari: Macrochelidae) from Mount Ijen, East Java, Indonesia, with description of a new species

Three species assignable to the macrocheles kraepelini species complex of the Macrocheles glaber species group were recorded from Mount Ijen, East Java, Indonesia and one species is new to science.

On three new Macrocheles from Iran, and discussion on the infrageneric sytematic units

The authors propose to substitute the term of superspecies for the existing species-groups, and to limit the glaber-group to the sibling species M. glaber and perglaber.

A New Species of the Genus Macrocheles ( Acari : Macrochelidae ) Associated with Eusilpha kurosawai

Macrocheles kurosai is very similar to M. nataliae Bregetova and Koroleva,1960,but is distinguished by the ornamentation of the dorsal setae and sternal shield, and is referable to the glaber species group of the genus Macrocheles.

Mites of the Macrocheles muscaedomesticae group in Australia (Acarina: Macrochelidae).

M. similis is shown to reproduce by thelytokous parthenogenesis, and this property, like the presence of 29 pairs of setae on the dorsal shield, is shows to have appeared more than once in the genus Macrocheles.


Four species of the genus Macrocheles belonging to the family Macrochelidae were reported from Raja Ampat, Waigeo Island, West Papua, including M. timikaensis Hartini & Takaku 2006 and M. dispar

Macrochelid mite fauna in the eastern part of the Lesser Sunda Islands, with description of two new species

Thirteen species in four genera of mites of the family Macrochelidae phoretic on dung beetles were collected in the eastern part of the Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia, providing the first record of

Macrochelid mites of the genus Macrocheles (Acari: Macrochelidae) in Kalimantan, Indonesia

Ten species of the genus Macrocheles (Acari: Macrochelidae) phoretic on dung beetles were recorded from Kalimantan, Indonesia, with new species being described as new and four species recorded for the first time from this area.

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.

フィリピンのハエダニ類 (ダニ亜綱 : ヤドリダニ団 : ハエダニ科)

Twenty one species of macrochelid mites belonging to the genera Glyptholaspis, Holostaspella, and Macrocheles, were collected in the Philippines. Of these, 3 species were described as new to science,
