The digestive system of Tetranychus urticae is described using light and electron microscopy. It is divided into pharynx, esophagus, midgut and hindgut with anus. The midgut consists of the ventriculus, three cranial and two caudal caeca. The pharynx which is surrounded by specialised structures for food ingestion, encloses the pharyngeal sucker and opens at the top of the gnathosoma. These structures serve to form a partial vacuum, by means of which plant cell components flow into the… 
Fine structure of the ‘hindgut’ of the two-spotted spider mite,Tetranychus urticae, with special reference to origin and function
The ultrahistology of the ‘hindgut’ of the spider miteTetranychus urticae is described, a new terminology of the histological portions, based on the presence and absence of cuticle, is presented, and
Ultrastructure and functional features of midgut of an adult water mite Teutonia cometes (Koch, 1837) (Hydrachnidia: Teutoniidae)
TLDR
The midgut of the adult water mite Teutonia cometes (Koch 1837) (Hydrachnidia: Teutoniidae) was investigated by means of transmission electron microscopy and on semi-thin sections.
COmpARATIvE ANALySES Of ThE INTERNAL ANATOmy AND fUNCTIONAL mORphOLOgy Of ThE ELEUThERENgONA ( ACARI , TROmbIDIfORmES )
TLDR
The study summarizes data on the internal anatomy of the mites belonging to the parvorder Eleutherengona mainly based on the families Tetranychidae, Cheyletidae, Syringophilidae, Myobiidae, and Demodicidae to reveal common features of the Eleutheresngona as well as possible phylogenetically informative characters in particular families.
Fine structure and function of the prosomal glands of the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae (Acari, Tetranychidae)
TLDR
The tracheal gland may produce a secretion which facilitates the movement of the fused chelicerae and the stylets, and the coxal organ may add a liquid, ion-rich secretion.
Cellular details of the midgut of Cryptocellus boneti (Arachnida: Ricinulei)
TLDR
The midgut of Cryptocellus boneti was studied by light and electron microscopy and cells of the midGut tube appear not to be involved in the absorption of food.
