Abstract

The rhodacaroid genus Laelaptonyssus is rediagnosed and descriptions are provided for two new species: Laelaptonyssus setosus sp. nov. from the host termites Reticulitermes flavipes and Laelaptonyssus hallidayi sp. nov. from Porotermes adamsoni. Morphological observations supporting the validity of Womersley s family Laelaptonyssidae are presented, along with a key to known species and notes on biological relationships.
