External morphology of the quiescent instars of trombiculid mites (Acariformes: Trombiculidae) with notes on their moulting processes

Abstract

The morphology and cuticular ultrastructure of the quiescent instars prelarva, proto-and tritonymph of the trombiculid mites, Hirsutiella zachvatkini, Leptotrombidium orientale and Leptotrombidium schlugerae (Trombiculidae) were investigated with transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
