Phylogeny and system of the Cheyletidae (Acari: Prostigmata) with special reference to their host-parasite associations

  title={Phylogeny and system of the Cheyletidae (Acari: Prostigmata) with special reference to their host-parasite associations},
  author={Andre V Bochkov and Alex Fain},
Summary The reconstruction of the phylogeny of the mite family Cheyletidae (Acari: Prostigmata) was effectuated by a cladistic method with the software PAUP 3.1. Representatives of most of the cheyletid genera have been examined. The predator mites of the family Stigmaeidae were used as outgroup. The analysis was based on 91 morphological characters. The obtained strict consensus tree has included 13 principal clusters and numerous ungrouped genera. Among these ungrouped genera, two genera, Bak… 

A New Mite Superfamily Cloacaroidea and its Position Within the Prostigmata (Acariformes)

The external morphology of 2 closely related mite families, Cloacaridae and Epimyodicidae, comprising highly specialized endoparasites of vertebrates, is analyzed and the reinterpretation of the chelicerae as unfused precludes inclusion of this lineage in the Cheyletoidea as proposed previously.

New observations on phylogeny of cheyletoid mites (Acari: Prostigmata: Cheyletoidea)

  • 2008
A new hypothesis of cheyletoid phylogeny was carried out with maximum parsimony approach and corresponds to the phylogenetic hypothesis proposed earlier (Bochkov 2002) with exception for the branch bearing the families Epimyodicidae and Cloacaridae, because they were recently excluded from the superfamily.

Phylogeny, taxonomy and biology of mites of the genera Chelacheles and Neochelacheles (Acari : Cheyletidae)

Phylogenetic analysis indicates that the associations of some species with polypore bracket fungi have arisen independently in the genera Chelacheles and Neochelacheles.

Five new species of predaceous cheyletid mites (Acari: Prostigmata: Cheyletidae)

Five new species and 1 new genus of predaceous cheyletid mites (Acari: Cheyletidae) are described. Oconnoricheylus gen. nov. (type species O. speciosus sp. nov.) differs from Alliea in both sexes by

Phylogeny and host associations of the fur-mite subgenus Listrophoroides (sensu stricto) Hirst (Acari : Atopomelidae) with an intriguing example of synhospitality on rats of the genus Maxomys

Phylogenetic relationships among species of the parasitic mite subgenus Listrophoroides Hirst (Atopomelidae), fur-mites of Asian and African murine rodents, are reconstructed on the basis of parsimony analysis of morphological characters, consistent with a hypothesis of Pliocene vicariance in some Sunda Shelf rodents and not with the traditional view of widespread migration across the Late Pleistocene Sunda

An overview of research on the family Cheyletidae (Acariformes) in Turkey, with a checklist of the Turkish cheyletid mites

The presence of newly recorded species indicates that Turkey has diverse cheyletid species which is still waiting to be discovered, and the name Lepidocheyla solimani Zaher & Hassan 1986 is considered as nomen nudum.

Nidocheyletus kennedyae n. gen, n. sp. (Prostigmata: Cheyletidae) from nests of passerine birds in Michigan, USA

ABSTRACT The external morphology of all postembryonic instars of a new cheyletid mite, Nidocheyletus kennedyae n. gen., n. sp., inhabiting nests of passerine birds in Michigan is described and

Systematics of the Genus Sciurocheyla (Acari: Cheyletidae), Parasites of Tropical Squirrels (Rodentia: Sciuridae)

Abstract Two genera of parasitic cheyletid mites, Smileycheles Fain, 1979 (monotypic) and Thryonomycheyla Fain, 1972 (two species), are synonymized with the genus Sciurocheyla Volgin, 1969. An

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



Observations on the taxonomic status of some cheyletid genera

A re-appraisal of the taxonomic characters used in the descriptions of the 78 genera of the family Cheyletidae is proposed, with four genera placed in synonymy and two species redescribed and depicted for the first time.

A systematic review of the parasitic mite genus Eucheyletiella VOLGIN, 1969 (Prostigmata: Cheyletidae).

The paper includes emended diagnosis of the parasitic mite genus Eucheyletiella VOLOIN, 1969 (Prostigmata: Cheyletidae) and description of three new species from pikas (Lagomorpha: Ochotonidae):

Further studies on the family Cheyletiellidae (Acarina).

Developmental stages of this species have been found in the epidermal tissues of a pigeon with thick scales caused by hyphae of an actinomycete, suggesting that the species may be partially endoparasitic.

A Review of the Family Cheyletiellidae (Acarina)

The subfamily Cheyletiellinae Volgin is raised to familial rank with eight genera and the following new species are described and figures are presented for each.

Cheletomorpha lepidopterorum (Shaw, 1794) (= Ch. venustissima) (Acari, Cheyletidae) on Lepidoptera

As long ago as 1839 C. L. KOCH described and pictured a mite which he found on several occasions in stables and hay-barns, and gave it the name Cheyletus venustissimus, but KOCH overlooked the fact that already in 1794 a description of the same mite had been published by SHAW with the name Acarus lepidopterorum (lepidopterine mite).

Notes on genera Samsinakia Volgin, 1965 and Metacheyletia Fain, 1972 (Acari: Cheyletidae)

The synonymy of Cryptocheyla Fain, 1972 and Samsinakia Volgin, 1965 (Cheyletidae) is confirmed, and a new subfamily Metacheyletiinae is erected for this unusual genus.

Cheyletid parasites or commensals in Malaysia (Acara: Cheyletidae)

The Cheyletid mites parasitic or commensal on mammals in Malaysia are revised and two other species may be expected: Hylopecheyla bunguranensis Fain and Theivkachela ratufi Ide & Kethley.

A new species of Pavlovskicheyla (Acarina: Cheyletidae) from the elytra of Platydema ruficorne (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) from Missouri

A new species of cheyletid mite of the genus Pavlovskicheyla from Missouri living under the elytra of Platydema ruficorne (Sturm) is named. Ali stages except larvae are illustrated.

Cheyletiella (Acari: Cheyletiellidae) of dog, cat and domesticated rabbit, a review.

Infestation with Cheyletiella is sometimes associated with a powdery, mealy dandruff on the back of the host, but at other times no macroscopically visible cutaneous changes are seen.
