The external morphology of adult and immature stages of mange mites of the genus Chorioptes was investigated with the aid of light and scanning electron microscopy. A molecular phylogeny of this genus was inferred based on six genes (18S, 28S rDNA, EF1-α, SRP54, HSP70, and CO1). The validity of four species (Ch. bovis, Ch. panda, Ch. texanus, and Ch. sweatmani sp. nov. described from the moose from Sweden, Finland, and Russia) was confirmed based on morphology and a Bayesian species… Expand
Species delimitation in northern European water scavenger beetles of the genus Hydrobius (Coleoptera, Hydrophilidae)
TLDR
Overall, morphological and molecular evidence strongly suggest that Hydrobius arcticus and the three morphological variants ofHydrobius fuscipes are separate species andhydrobius rottenbergii Gerhardt, 1872, stat. Expand
Investigating species boundaries using DNA and morphology in the mite Tyrophagus curvipenis (Acari: Acaridae), an emerging invasive pest, with a molecular phylogeny of the genus Tyrophagus
TLDR
For the first time, the occurrence of T. curvipenis in the New World is recorded and it is suggested that it may be an emerging pest as it is currently spreading in agricultural produce. Expand
Phylogenetic position of the house dust mite subfamily Guatemalichinae (Acariformes: Pyroglyphidae) based on integrated molecular and morphological analyses and different measures of support
TLDR
The findings suggest the need for a comprehensive revision of the higher‐level relationships of pyroglyphid house dust mites using both DNA sequences and morphology coupled with a broad taxonomic sampling. Expand
Population identification and divergence threshold in Psoroptidae based on ribosomal ITS2 and mitochondrial COI genes
TLDR
RDNA ITS2 is better than mtDNA COI for DNA barcoding in Psoroptidae and is recommended for morphological classification and identification. Expand
Comprehensive phylogeny of acariform mites (Acariformes) provides insights on the origin of the four-legged mites (Eriophyoidea), a long branch.
TLDR
The total evidence analysis places eriophyoids as the sister group of the deep soil-dwelling, vermiform family Nematalycidae (Endeostigmata). Expand
Convergent and unidirectional evolution of extremely long aedeagi in the largest feather mite genus, Proctophyllodes (Acari: Proctophyllodidae): Evidence from comparative molecular and morphological phylogenetics.
TLDR
For the most species-rich genus, Proctophyllodes, a predictive classification of species-groups that reconciles molecular and morphological data is developed that avoids false synapomorphies that could affect morphology-based phylogenetic inference. Expand
A new synonymy, CO1 barcode, and host and distribution records of the mite Podapolipus luzoni (Acari: Podapolipidae), a subelytral parasite of the invasive beetle, Gonocephalum adpressiforme (Coleoptera, Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
The host range and distribution of the mite species, including its occurrence on Gonocephalum adpressiforme from the Philippines, is clarified, and its synonymy with Podapolipus alumniae is discussed, collected from the same host species in Hawaii. Expand
Origin of host-parasite associations of Marsupialges misonnei (Acariformes: Psoroptidae)—a parasitological detective story
TLDR
It is argued that M. misonnei was originally parasitic on Nasua spp. Expand
Cox1 barcoding versus multilocus species delimitation: validation of two mite species with contrasting effective population sizes
TLDR
This research highlights the importance of using nuclear genes and demographic characteristics to infer species boundaries rather than relying on a single-gene barcoding approach, particularly for putative species having large effective population sizes. Expand
Feather mites of the new genus Bernierinyssus gen. n. (Acariformes: Pteronyssidae) from endemic Malagasy warblers (Passeriformes: Bernieridae)—a lineage showing symbiotic cospeciation with their avian hosts
TLDR
The study suggests that species of the genus Bernierinyssus have evolved slower than their avian hosts or co-associated feather lice, resulting in a nearly perfect correlation between mite and bird species richness (Eichler's Rule). Expand

Multilocus species delimitation in a complex of morphologically conserved trapdoor spiders (mygalomorphae, antrodiaetidae, aliatypus).
TLDR
This study investigates species limits in a complex of morphologically conserved trapdoor spiders from California and provides a framework for identifying and defining the cryptic lineage diversity that prevails in many organismal groups. Expand

Origin and higher-level relationships of psoroptidian mites (Acari: Astigmata: Psoroptidia): evidence from three nuclear genes.
TLDR
The existence of the epidermoptid-psoroptid complex and the statistical rejection of Sarcoptoidea indicate that current classification criteria need to be reassessed for non-pterolichoid superfamilies. Expand
Chorioptes mites: re‐evaluation of species integrity
TLDR
This analysis supports the validity of C. bovis and C. texanus as morphologically distinct, and supports the existence of a proposed third species of Chorioptes, and suggests that the mites described by Sweatman in his classic 1958 description of C., texanus, which were obtained from the ears of semi‐domesticated reindeer are likely to have been specimens of this as yet unnamed species. Expand
Widespread genealogical nonmonophyly in species of Pinus subgenus Strobus.
TLDR
It is felt that incomplete lineage sorting remains the best explanation for the polymorphisms shared among species, and taxa sharing similar life history traits with Pinus are likely to show species nonmonophyly using nuclear markers. Expand
SPECIES DELIMITATION WITH ABC AND OTHER COALESCENT‐BASED METHODS: A TEST OF ACCURACY WITH SIMULATIONS AND AN EMPIRICAL EXAMPLE WITH LIZARDS OF THE LIOLAEMUS DARWINII COMPLEX (SQUAMATA: LIOLAEMIDAE)
TLDR
All three SDMs consistently supported the distinctness of southern and northern lineages within L. darwinii and should be complemented with novel SDMs based on morphological and ecological data to achieve truly integrative and statistically robust approaches to species discovery. Expand
Estimating phylogenetic relationships despite discordant gene trees across loci: the species tree of a diverse species group of feather mites (Acari: Proctophyllodidae)
TLDR
The broad utility of species tree approaches is discussed, and specifically, their application to groups with high speciation rates – a history of diversification with particular prevalence in host/parasite systems where species interactions can drive rapid diversification. Expand

TLDR
Infestations with a previously undescribed Chorioptes species was frequently detected in the outer ear canals of moose in Sweden, and the mites were evidently pathogenic, being associated with inflammatory lesions of the external auditory meatus. Expand
