Torrenticola larvata n. sp. is described from the Interior Highlands of North America. Given the absence of this species from surrounding collecting events, this species is proposed to be endemic to the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas, USA. The present study reveals significant morphological features in T. larvata that distinguish it from similar species (e.g., T. trimaculata Fisher, 2015). Adult T. larvata are most easily differentiated from other Torrenticola by their unique color pattern…

Chinese water mites of the genus Torrenticola Piersig, 1896 (Acari, Hydrachnidia, Torrenticolidae), with descriptions of two new species and a new record from Foding Mountain
TLDR
Three water mite species of the genus Torrenticola Piersig, 1896 are reported from Foding Mountain National Nature Reserve, Guizhou Province, China and T. nipponica (Enami, 1940) is recorded in China for the first time, with the first description and illustration of its deutonymph.
Revision of torrent mites (Parasitengona, Torrenticolidae, Torrenticola) of the United States and Canada: 90 descriptions, molecular phylogenetics, and a key to species
TLDR
The findings indicate that total diversity of Torrenticola in the United States and Canada comprises 90 species, 57 known from the east and 33 from the west, and the need to synonymize four species is indicated.

Studies on Latin American water mites of the genus Torrenticola Piersig, 1896 (Torrenticolidae, Hydrachnidia, Acari)
TLDR
The Latin American species of Torrenticola are presented and discussed comprehensively for the first time, with a clear, robust system of ten species groups – five of these are regarded as phylogenetic entities, five as rather artificial groups.

TLDR
A new water mite species is described from the Interior Highlands of North America based on morphological analysis supported by DNA sequence data and the phylogenetic hypothesis indicated that specimens from the interior Highlands formed a clade that was differentiated from various species of Kongsbergia from Appalachia.

TLDR
Morphological, life history, and distributional data are presented for North American species of the subgenus Stygomomonia (sensu stricto) Szalay, 1943, and deutonymphs of five of these species are described for the first time.

TLDR
This is the first species of the genus Bogatia and the subfamily Bogatiinae to be reported from North America and it is described from interstitial water in gravel deposits associated with small streams in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Host-Parasite Interaction and Impact of Larval Water Mites on Insects
TLDR
Understanding of the parasitic relationship between water mites and insects has been greatly hampered by the difficulty of associating adult mites with the insects, so I limit my discussion to larval-stage parasites of insects.
