Several new and some previously described species of free living prostig­ matic mites of Antarctica are illustrated and described. New species are Eupodes wisei; Stereotydeus mollis; Rhagidia leechi; Rhagidia macquariensis (from Macquarie Island); Coc- corhagidia gressitti; Nanorchestes antarcticus. Species redescribed are Stereotydeus villosus (Trouessart) ; Stereotydeus belli (Trouessart) ; Rhagidia gerlachei Trouessart. Introduction: Several months prior to his death, Dr. Herbert Womersley… Expand

Mites of the genus Eupodes (Acari, Prostigmata) from maritime Antarctica: a biometrical and taxonomic study
A series of 40 male and 40 female mites of the prostigmatid genus Eupodes from the maritime Antarctic were each scored for 58 morphological characters, and principal co-ordinate analyses wereExpand
Two New Species of the Mite Genus Stereotydeus Berlese, 1901 (Prostigmata: Penthalodidae) from Victoria Land, and a Key for Identification of Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic Species
Two new mite species belonging to the genus Stereotydeus Berlese, 1901 were discovered from locations along the coast of Victoria Land, continental Antarctica. Previous records of this genus in theExpand
Revision of the family Alycidae (Acariformes, Acari), with special reference to European species
TLDR
This thesis provides a proposal to divide Alycidae G. Canestrini & Fanzago into two subfamilies and four tribes, based on a reassessment and reranking of new and previously known synapomorphies of the clusters concerned by cladistic analysis, using 60 morphological characters. Expand
Determinants of terrestrial arthropod community composition at Cape Hallett, Antarctica
TLDR
There was some distinction among arthropod communities of different habitats, with water and a lichen species (indicative of scree slope habitats) ranking as significant community predictors alongside spatial variables in a Canonical Correspondence Analysis. Expand
Expanded distributional records of Collembola and Acari in southern Victoria Land, Antarctica
TLDR
New distributional records for the Collembola and Acari from south Victoria Land in the Ross Dependency, Antarctica are provided including the first extensive survey of Taylor Valley and the design of a modified device for the rapid sampling of Antarctic terrestrial arthropods is described. Expand
A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE LIFE STAGES OF THE MITE, STEREOTYDEUS
The life cycle of Stereotydeus mollis consists of 5 active stages: larva, protonymph, deutonymph, tritonymph, and adult. Characters that remain unchanged throughout the life cycle include the dorsalExpand
New species of the genus Troglocheles (Acari: Prostigmata: Rhagidiidae) from Oetztal Alps, Tyrol, with a key to adult species of the genus
TLDR
Phylogenetic and evolutionary relationships among the known talus- and cave-dwelling species of the genus Troglocheles Zacharda are briefly outlined, including the possibilities of sympatric versus allopatric speciation. Expand
ENTOMOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS IN ANTARCTICA, 1962-63 SEASON1
Two aspects of Bishop Museum work in Victoria Land and Ross L, Antarc­ tica, during the 1962-63 summer season are reported. A survey extended into a biologically unknown area produced newExpand
On the cold hardiness of Stereotydeus mollis (Acari: Prostigmata) from Ross Island, Antarctica
TLDR
There was no correlation between supercooling points and several microclimate parameters, and Osmolality was similar to what has been found in other Antarctic mites, however no thermal hysteresis activity was detectable in haemolymph samples. Expand
A synonymic catalogue of the Acari from Antarctica, the sub-Antarctic Islands and the Southern Ocean
TLDR
The records, taxonomy and geographical distribution of 528 species of Acari collected from the Antarctic, sub-Antarctic islands and the Southern Ocean are collated and a full alphabetical index to all current higher taxa is provided. Expand
