The mode of cleavage in the Acari is generalized as superficial or intralecithal, with a preceding phase of total (holoblastic) cleavage, but the knowledge is fragmentary and conclusions have been inconsistent, even when relating to the same species. Since no data about early embryology is available for the speciose group Oribatida, we studied Archegozetes longisetosus using transmission electron microscopy. We focused on early cleavages and the formation of the blastula, as these are the… Expand
