Three closely related species of mites of the genus Cheletophyes were collected from large African carpenter bees: C. venator (Vitzthum) is associated with Xylocopa nigrita; C. torridae sp. nov. and C. mbomba sp. nov. are associated with Xylocopa torrida. Ranges of 21 morphometric variables in C. venator and putative C. torridae are overlapping. However, a large gap between the two groups was detected in multivariate shape space, indicating the presence of two sibling species. The best subset… CONTINUE READING
