Hypopial nymphs of mites of the family Hypoderidae were recovered from the subcutaneous tissues of 10 species of birds in Louisiana. New host records are established for Hypodectes (Hypodectoides) propus bubulci from Leucophoyx thula and Dichromonassa rufescens and Hypodectes (Hypodectes) nycticoracis from Ixobrychus exilis and Florida caerulea. Additional host records for the above are the former species from Ardea herodius herodius, Bubulcus ibis, and Florida caerulea and the latter from…

Two new species of the genus Neottialges Fain, 1966 are described from nests of herons and gull-like birds from the northern coastal region of the Black Sea (Ukraine) and the latter subgenus is elevated to the generic rank.
Observations on the life cycle of Neottialges (Pelecanectes) evansi Fain, 1966 and Phalacrodectes whartoni Fain, 1967 with descriptions of new taxa (Acari, Hypoderatidae)
The family Hypoderatidae Murray (Acari, Astigmata) now comprises, including the new taxa described herein, 68 species or subspecies grouped in 30 genera or subgenera, with a key to the adult forms given and the evolution of this group of mites is discussed.
A guide to the heteromorphic deutonymphs or hypopi (Acarina: Hypoderidae) living under the skin of birds, with the description of Ibisidectes debilis gen. and sp. nov. from the scarlet ibis
Summary A key is provided to the known genera of Hypoderid mites living subcutaneously in the hypopial stage in birds. Recent knowledge is summarized of this family of mites, known earlier under the

It is suggested a lack of reports of this infection site could be explained by limited scrutiny of orbits, and deutonymphs mites infecting orbits may be more common than expected.
