ABSTRACT Seven species of mites were found associated with the dung beetle Oxysternum conspicillatum in Colombia. Macrocheles neotransversus sp. nov. based on adults and the male of Macrocheles magna are described. Both species belong to the mitis species-group (Holocelaeno). Macrocheles boxi, M. phanaei, M. roquensis and Glyptholaspis confusa are reported for the first time in Colombia. Additionally, a case of hyperphoresy of deutonymphs of Histiostoma sp. on Megalolaelaps colossus is… Expand
