This study was conducted to identify the domestic mite fauna of Puerto Rico. A total of 57 dust samples were collected from mattresses in homes of 11 cities on the Island. The analysis of the samples revealed that 73.70% of the mattress samples had at least one mite species. The identified species include: Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (45.6%), Blomia tropicalis (31.6%), Cheyletus sp. (19.3%), Dermatophagoides farinae (17.5%), Euroglyphus maynei (5.3%), Dermatophagoides sibonei (1.8… 
Acarological Characteristics of Dust Originating from Urban and Rural Houses in Northwestern Poland
TLDR
The aim of this study was to determine the species composition of allergenic mites found in West Pomerania in northwestern Poland, and found that the average number of D. farinae was higher in rural than in urban apartments.
[Mite species found in house dust in houses in Bursa.].
TLDR
Sixty four samples of house dust were examined in order to detect the prevalence of the mite species and to identity them in houses in Bursa and a total of 22 houses were found to be infested with house dust mites.
House Dust Mites in Erzincan Province.
TLDR
The species of the house dust mites seen in Erzincan, the number of mites per gram of dust in the houses, and the relationship between temperature and thenumber of mite specimens were determined to be determined.
Diversity of House Dust Mite Species in Xishuangbanna Dai, a Tropical Rainforest Region in Southwest China
TLDR
The HDM population in homes in Xishuangbanna, a tropical rainforest region in Southwest China, has its own characteristics and it has rich dust mite species and the dust mites densities do not show significant variation across seasons.
Dust Mites in Erzincan Province Erzincan
TLDR
Mite-holding rate of the houses in Erzincan province was found to be 94.44%, and the most common mite species was A. siro, which was followed by D. pteronyssinus.
Species Diversity of House Dust Mites in Beijing, China
TLDR
It is reported that Dermatophagoides siboney was found for the first time in Beijing, China, in a temperate zone and it was also the first reported in Asia.
Seasonal Dynamics of House Dust Mites in Dust Samples Collected From Sleeping Places in North‐Western Poland
TLDR
The results confirm the high incidence of house dust mites in sleeping places in north‐western Poland dwellings; the best conditions for the development of these mites, mainly D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus, occur in the fourth quarter and are the least favourable in the second quarter.
Ecological analysis of acari recovered from coprolites from archaeological site of northeast Brazil.
TLDR
The present work discusses the possibility of the preservation of the mite groups found up to the present day and their relationship with the environment and their importance to present populations.
Allergens involved in the cross-reactivity of Aedes aegypti with other arthropods.
Cross–Reactivity between Dermatophagoides siboney and Other Domestic Mites
TLDR
The individual allergens of Ds were more similar to Df and Dm than to Dp; there was a limited and variable cross–reactivity with non–pyroglyphid mites; and no single allergen was unique for Ds.
