Phylogenic relationships of the Psoroptidia, a group of primarily parasitic mites of vertebrates, were investigated based on sequences from three nuclear genes (4.2 kb aligned) sampled from 126 taxa. Several morphological classification schemes and a recent molecular analysis, suggesting that the group may not be monophyletic were statistically rejected by newly generated molecular data, and the results are robust under a range of analytical and partition strategies. Six families Psoroptidae… 
Phylogeny and systematics of mammal-associated psoroptidian mites (Acariformes : Astigmata : Psoroptidia) derived from external morphology
We used morphological characters to explore the phylogeny of mammal-associated psoroptidian mites. In both maximum parsimony and Bayesian analyses, the clades uniting Psoroptoidea and
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).
Molecular phylogeny of acariform mites (Acari, Arachnida): strong conflict between phylogenetic signal and long-branch attraction artifacts.
TLDR
The first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of Acariformes using sequence data from the nuclear small subunit rRNA gene (18S rDNA) and the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI, amino acids) confirms the monophyly of Acari and recognizes two orders within Acari: Sarcoptiformes, consisting of Endeostigmata and Oribatida+Astigmata, and Trombidiformes.
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.
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.
Integrative taxonomy approach for analysing evolutionary history of the tribe Euseiini Chant & McMurtry (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
TLDR
The tribe Euseiini and the two subtribes considered are monophyletic (at least considering the available taxa), supporting the present hypothesis on Phytoseiidae classification, however, the genus Iphiseius seems to not be valid and its unique species is included in the genus Euseius.
Cophylogenetic assessment of New World warblers (Parulidae) and their symbiotic feather mites (Proctophyllodidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that cospeciation is not the case for feather mites and parulid hosts at this fine phylogenetic scale, and the question if cospeciating applies for other symbiotic systems involving hosts that have complex life histories is raised.
Integrated Bayesian species delimitation and morphological diagnostics of chorioptic mange mites (Acariformes: Psoroptidae: Chorioptes)
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
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.
Secondary structure of expansion segment D1 in LSU rDNA from Arachnida and its phylogenetic application in Eriophyoid mites and in Acari.
TLDR
Investigation of D1 sequences of Arachnida taxa and predicted corresponding secondary structures demonstrated that the D1 region could act as a valuable molecular marker in phylogenetic reconstruction of Eriophyoidea and has been proven suitable for phylogenetic analysis at the family and genus level in Acari.

Phylogeny and evolution of parasitism in feather mites of the families Epidermoptidae and Dermationidae (Acari: Analgoidea)
TLDR
A hypothesis explaining main trends in morphological and ecological adaptations to parasitism on birds within the epidermoptid complex is proposed and new taxonomic diagnoses for higher taxa and subfamilies are provided.
Phylogeny of feather mite subfamily Avenzoariinae (Acari: Analgoidea: Avenzoariidae) inferred from combined analyses of molecular and morphological data.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among feather mites of the subfamily Avenzoariinae were reconstructed by parsimony analysis of a combined data matrix and could be reconciled by the invoking of 12-13 cospeciation events, 6-7 duplications, 2 host shifts, and 26-29 sorting events, suggesting a high degree of cospeciating.
Phylogenetic relationships in the mite family Sarcoptidae (Acari: Astigmata).

A phylogenetic analysis of the relationships among the 117 recognizable species of the mite family Sarcoptidae Murray, 1877 is carried out based on 215 morphological and ontogenetic characters.
Phylogenetic relationships in the skin-inhabiting Sarcoptoidea (Acari: Astigmata)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of relationships is carried out among the skin-inhabiting mites presently included in the families Rhyncopt Families, Audycoptidae and Sarcoptidae, finding the Rhync Optidae (sensu nov.) appears to be the sister group of the Sarcoptoidea.
Morphological evidence for the evolutionary origin of Astigmata (Acari: Acariformes)
TLDR
The general hypothesis that Astigmata originated within oribatid mites is refined and Malaconothridae as a possible sister group is suggested and brought to light evolutionary questions that were previously obscured by incorrect or inappropriate classifications.

The results support the view that the mouthparts of extant dipteran larvae evolved from a derived ground state characterized by subdivided and obliquely moving mandibles.

TLDR
Because transmission between hosts usually depends on host body contact, it is unsurprising that feather mite phylogeny often parallels host phylogeny; however, recent cladistic analyses have also found evidence of host-jumping and "missing the boat" in several mite lineages.
Origin and Evolution of Feather Mites (Astigmata)
TLDR
The view on the general feather mite phylogeny course at the familial rank for the Analgoidea is presented by means of cladistic analysis and co-speciation of parasites with their hosts is postulated as a main factor driving feather mites evolution.
EVOLUTIONARY ECOLOGY OF ASTIGMATID MITES
TLDR
The cohort Astigmata with 69 families and 785 genera represents by far the largest adaptive radiation of mites into symbi­ otic associations, and other acarine lineages include relatively diverse radiations in association with both arthropods and vertebrates, but none approach the diversity of the AstigmATA.
