During the studies on ecology of Trichoptera of anthropogenic water bodies we have unexpectedly discovered the parasitic larvae of water mites of the species Tiphys torris on the pupa of Triaenodes bicolor. This is the first documented case of the parasitism of water mites on the caddisfly pupa as well as the first ever record of the species which is regarded as a dipteran parasite on caddisflies. The situation is very untypical for preimaginal stages of caddisflies are used by phoretic and not… Expand
New host-parasite associations of Hydrachnidia (Acari) on Chironomidae (Diptera) from Poland
Abstract We present the first data from Poland concerning parasitism of Hydrachnidia on Chironomidae. Larvae of Hygrobates sp., H. setosus, Unionicola aculeata and Piona stjoerdalensis were foundExpand
First record of larvae of the water mite Hydrachna processifera Piersig, 1895 from Turkey (Acari, Hydrachnidia, Hydrachnidae)
TLDR
The larva of H. processifera is a new record for the Turkish fauna and was described as H. inermis, but it was subsequently synonymized with H.processifera. Expand
First evidence of parasitation of a Bosmina (Cladocera) by a water mite larva in a karst sinkhole, in Quintana Roo (Yucatán Peninsula, México)
For the first time a parasitic relationship between a water mite larva and a Cladocera is found and documented by scanning electron microscope (SEM) imaging. A Unionicolidae larva (cf. Unionicola)Expand
New records of host-parasite relationships between Coenagrion scitulum (Rambur, 1842) (Odonata) and water mite larvae (Hydrachnidia) in core and edge host populations
TLDR
No differences were found in degree of infestation of Coenagrion scitulum individuals between core and edge populations, with the exception of Hydryphantes octoporus, which parasitized damselflies only in core populations. Expand
First detailed records of water mite larvae (Hydrachnidia: Hydrovolzidae, Hydryphantidae) parasitizing empidid flies (Diptera: Empididae: Clinocerinae)
TLDR
Five species of the subfamily Clinocerinae from the Tatra Mountains (S Poland) were observed to be parasitized by larval water mites, with the highest number of hosts occurring in the case of Panisopsis curvifrons with five host species. Expand
Influence of temperature and light–dark cycle on hatching of Eylais extendens
Little research has been done on egg diapause and the embryonic development of water mites. The aim of this study was to check the impact of temperature and periods of light on hatching of larvae ofExpand

Types of parasitism by larvae of water mites (Acari: Hydrachnellae)
TLDR
The larvae of Hydrachnellae can be divided into three types, based on the habits of the parasitic (larval) stage in the life cycle, which means that it may be difficult for the mite larva to return to water. Expand
Non-biting midges as hosts for water mite larvae in spring habitats in Luxembourg
TLDR
It is shown that the Luxembourg springs have similar chironomid diversity to other springs in Europe, and that particular species are more often found in certain spring habitats, and there are several species which were not parasitized despite being numerous in the authors' samples. Expand
REVIEW OF PARASITIC ASSOCIATIONS OF LARVAL WATER MITES (ACARI: PARASITENGONA: HYDRACHNIDA) WITH INSECT HOSTS
Historical and recently published information on the parasitic associations of larval water mites with insect hosts is critically reviewed and summarized. A number of problematical published hostExpand
On the morphology and parasitism of Arrenurus globator (O. F. Müller, 1776) (Hydrachnidia, Acari) a water mite with an unusually extensive host spectrum
TLDR
Observations made in the laboratory and in the field demonstrated that the parasitic stage can successfully be spent on nematocerous larvae and imagines as well as on the larvae of different coleopteran families. Expand
Larval parasitism of spring-dwelling alpine water mites (Hydrachnidia, Acari): a study with particular reference to chironomid hosts
TLDR
The parasitological data presented provide, in most cases, basic information concerning previously unknown parasite–host associations and the reason for the strong crenobiosis in water mites cannot be explained by their parasitism. Expand
The biology and ecology of lotic water mites (Hydrachnidia)
TLDR
The Hydrachnidia (water mites, Hydracarina) are the most diversified group of the Acari in freshwaters and are abundant and speciose in lotic habitats, although most lotic species belong to the Hydryphantoidea, Lebertioidea and Hygrobatoidea. Expand

Distribution patterns and environmental correlates of water mites (Hydrachnidia, Acari) in peatland microhabitats
TLDR
Water conductivity is the most important of the examined factors, driving mite-species distribution in peatlands and found strong correlations between the water mite fauna and both conductivity and pH gradient. Expand
