There is no report on the frequency, species selection and site specificity of water mites' ectoparasitism within and among dragonfly species of India. Here, we present a field survey of the species selection and site specificity of ectoparasite larval arrenurid mites on anisopteran adults at Nagpur city of central India. Since the female odonates returns to water to oviposit, it would be of some advantage for the mite to show a female-biased parasitism in order to return to water easily and… Expand
