The family Halacaridae comprises more than one thousand mostly marine or rarely freshwater species. Many are predacious, but among marine mites, some genera evolved the ability to feed on macroalgae. We inferred a time-calibrated phylogeny based on 18S rDNA, 28S rDNA, and Cytochrome oxidase I (5,143 nt aligned) and all non-monotypic halacarid subfamilies plus a representative outgroup set (72 taxa). The family Halacaridae was rendered as the sister-group of Parasitengona, diverging 321.5, 264.0… Expand
The genus Halacarellus (Halacaridae, Acari), analysis of distribution, ecology, systematics, and description of H. balticus
The genus Halacarellus Viets, 1927 holds 50 species, and this number equals 4% of all halacarid species known to date. The genus is spread in all oceans, and a few species are even known fromExpand
Arachnid monophyly: Morphological, palaeontological and molecular support for a single terrestrialization within Chelicerata.
TLDR
It is argued arachnid monophyly obviates the need to posit reacquisition/retention of aquatic characters such as gnathobasic feeding and book gills without trabeculae from terrestrial ancestors in horseshoe crabs, and that the scorpion total-group contains few aquatic taxa. Expand
Evaluating the boundaries of marine biogeographic regions of the Southwestern Atlantic using halacarid mites (Halacaridae), meiobenthic organisms with a low dispersal potential
TLDR
This study suggests that the major biogeographic boundary in the Southwestern Atlantic lies not at Cabo Frio but at the Abrolhos Plateau, where two biogeographically relevant factors meet: changes in current directions and abrupt changes in environmental parameters associated with the South Atlantic Central Waters (SACW) upwelling.

TLDR
This study suggests that the major biogeographic boundary in the Southwestern Atlantic lies not at Cabo Frio but at the Abrolhos Plateau, indicating that changes in current directions and abrupt changes in environmental parameters associated with the South Atlantic Central Waters (SACW) upwelling meet.

A Cambrian–Ordovician Terrestrialization of Arachnids
TLDR
The discrepancy between molecular and fossil evidence for terrestrialization is likely driven by the extreme sparseness of terrestrial sediments in the rock record before the late Silurian, as seen in both myriapods and arachnids. Expand
Habitat differences filter functional diversity of low dispersive microscopic animals (Acari, Halacaridae)
TLDR
The functional diversity of marine mite communities living in a seagrass meadow across two habitats: the leaves and the matte is analyzed to emphasise the need of moving from a taxonomical towards a functional view of ecological studies of microscopic organisms. Expand
Distribution patterns of intertidal oribatid mites (Acari, Oribatida) from South African shores and their relationship to temperature
A faunistic study of the intertidal oribatid mite fauna of South Africa’s coastline revealed the presence of four species from three families, showing specific biogeographic patterns. TheirExpand
Habitat differences filter functional diversity of low dispersive microscopic animals
TLDR
The results show that habitat filters the distribution of certain traits favouring a higher diversity, dispersion, and evenness of functional traits in the matte than in the leaves, and conclude that in other microscopic organisms, habitat filtering might appear even more subtle. 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
Origin and higher-level diversification of acariform mites – evidence from nuclear ribosomal genes, extensive taxon sampling, and secondary structure alignment
TLDR
The accepted taxonomic classification of Acariformes is updated to reflect the results, which show that a clade comprising early derivative Endeostigmata (Alycidae, Nanorchestidae, Nematalyc Families, and maybe Alicorhagiidae) should be treated as a taxon with the same rank as Sarcoptiformes and Trombidiformes.

Higher-level molecular phylogeny of the water mites (Acariformes: Prostigmata: Parasitengonina: Hydrachnidiae).
TLDR
It is found that larval leg structure and locomotory behavior are strongly congruent with the molecular phylogeny of water mites, and all commonly accepted water mite superfamilies except for Hydryphantoidea, which is clearly paraphyletic. Expand
Geographical and ecological distribution of marine halacarid genera and species (Acari: Halacaridae)

TLDR
None of the free-living halacarid genera of the world's oceans appears to be endemic to one geographical province. Expand
Global distribution patterns of non‐halacarid marine intertidal mites: implications for their origins in marine habitats
TLDR
The emerging trends suggest different geological time-scales for the evolutionary incursions into the marine environment by the mesostigmatid and prostigmatid mite group and the oribatid and astigmatidmite group suggest that members of the latter have had longer associations with marine intertidal systems.

TLDR
This new fossil represents the first unequivocal record of Acari from the Crato Formation, the first non-amber record of an erythraeoid mite and the oldest named example of this superfamily of Mesozoic mites. Expand

Phylogenomic interrogation of arachnida reveals systemic conflicts in phylogenetic signal.
TLDR
It is shown that phylogenetic signal for the monophyly of Arachnida is restricted to the 500 slowest-evolving genes in the data set, and that outgroup selection without regard for branch length distribution exacerbates long-branch attraction artifacts and does not mitigate gene-tree discordance, regardless of high gene representation for outgroups that are model organisms.

Molecular phylogenetic relationships of halacarid mites suggest the reevaluation of traditional subfamily classification
TLDR
It can be concluded that molecular phylogenetic analysis challenges the current classifications of Halacarinae and Rhombognathinae subfamilies and diagnostic characters for their classification should be reevaluated. Expand
