A century ago, Antonio Berlese first discussed the close phylogenetic relationship between the large mite groups Oribatida and Astigmata. Since then, information having phylogenetic value has greatly increased and the paradigms within which we interpret it have changed. Herein I refine the general hypothesis that Astigmata originated within oribatid mites and suggest Malaconothridae as a possible sister group. Among the 14 apomorphies used to support the origin of Astigmata within oribatid… CONTINUE READING
