Résumé 

The oribatid mite Pantelozetes

The redescription of Pantelozetes crosbyi (Berlese 1908) (Oribatida, Thyrisomidae) is presented, based on material from Missouri, USA. The main morphological traits for this species are summarized.

New moss mite of the Camisia from western Nearctic region ( Acari : Oribatida : Camisiidae )

A new oribatid mite, Camisia orthogonia n. sp. is described on the basis of specimens found in the forest litter in western states of USA and British Columbia (Canada). Its assignment to any of the

Mesoplophoroidea (Acari, Oribatida) of China.

The oribatid mite superfamily Mesoplophoroidea (Acari, Oribatida) is reviewed and tritonymph of Apoplophora pantotrema (Berlese, 1913) is described based on material from China.

Dispersal of soredia by the oribatid mite, Humerobates arborea

Frequency of soredia acquisition and deposition by the oribatid mite, Humerobates arborea, was investigated and it was found that 25% of tree trunks in five unevenaged forests in central Maine were affected by the mite.

New species of Trimalaconothrus from Mexico (Acari: Oribatei: Malaconothridae)

Six new Mexican Trimalaconothrus live in the canopy, soil, water and litter and a key for determination of Neotropical and Nearctic species of the genus is given.

Review of the genus Acrotritia (Acari, Oribatida, Euphthiracaridae) with a world checklist, a key to known species of the Neotropical Region, and a description of a new species from Colombia

The oribatid mite genus Acrotritia Jacot, 1923 (Euphthiracaridae) is reviewed and a new species, Acrotritis colombianus sp.

Oribatid Mites (Acari: Oribatida) from Iran, with Descriptions of Two New Species

The present work deals mostly with the members of primitive or macropyline (Macropylina) and a few higher or brachypyline (Brachypylina) oribatid mites from Yazd Province, Central Iran. Two new

THE GENUS ODONTOCEPHEUS (ACARI: ORIBATIDA: CARABODIDAE) IN NORTH AMERICA, WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES

An unusual, deep posterior depression on the notogaster easily separates this species from all others in the genus Odontocepheus, which has a known distribution is Illinois and West Virginia south to northern Florida.

Taxonomic, geographic and seasonal distribution of thelytokous parthenogenesis in the Desmonomata (Acari: Oribatida)

The data suggest that thelytoky is not an adaptation for particular environments, that this reproductive mode is not recent in these mites, and that speciation and evolutionary radiation probably occurred in the absence of biparental reproduction.

A comparison of the faunal list with lists of species recorded by the author on another peak in Snowdonia and on high ground in other parts of Britain and by Block in Westmorland provides evidence of a group of additional species which can be regarded as characteristic of upland areas in general of Great Britain and Europe.

The evolution and distribution of Calyptozetes sarekensis (Acari: Oribatei)

It is suggested that this mite's presence on the different land masses of its main arctic and subarctic range could be explained by the hypothesis that it is a very ancient species daring from the time Laurasia was in existence some 60 or more million years ago.
